Environment
Beimen Township is a seashore town at the tip of the northwestern side of Tainan County. In a shape of irregular rectangle, Beimen was once part of the Taiwan River inland sea, which silted into the coast towns. Bordering Syuejia Township at east, Taiwan Strait at west, Jiangjyun Creek and Jiangjyun Township at south, and Bajhang Creek and Chiayi County (Yijhu, Budai Townships) at north, Beimen is in the subtropics where the climate is humid and mild – it is a place highly suitable for outdoor activities.

ico History
Beimen Township is located at the northwestern coast of Tainan County, south of the Jiianan Plain Jishuei Creek. It was once a sandbank islet in the inland sea outside of the mouth of Jishuei Creek. Before 1920, this place had been called the Beimen Isle. From the municipality maps of the Kangxi and Qianlong Periods in the History of Tainan County, we can see that the Beimen Isle had been guarding the mouth of Ouwang Creek, but in the Daoguang map, the Beimen Isle was no longer an isle; it became connected to the land. It was inferred that the changes may have occurred during the last year of Qianlong and the first year of Daoguang periods.
In 1895, the Japanese came to Taiwan. Immediately, the Japanese lifted the monopoly license of the salt trade. All of a sudden, the salt fields became unmanaged and began to waste away. In 1898, the Japanese re-implemented the monopoly system, so the surround salt fields, like the Wangye, Guangtian, Jingzaijao (Laidong Field), and Beimen Salt farms began to thrive again. In the early years of the Japanese Colonial Era, Beimen was the only fishing port in Tainan County known for thriving fishing and salt-making businesses.
    The Japanese once set up the Beimen Isle Branch Office here, but as the port gradually became clogged Beimen’s function as a port gradually disappeared. Since then, Beimen became a simple and quiet salt village. During the Daoguang Period of Qing Dynasty, the islet became connected to the land; for a long period of time, Beimen was zoned into the Municipality of Sueijia Village. Until the Japanese Era, Beimen became an independent Village and after the war Beimen Village was reclassified as the Beimen Township. Together with Jiangjun and Cigu Townships, it is part of the Coast Three Townships as well as a production area of fish and salt.
