The Chihsing Tan Katsuo Museum (Chinese: 七星柴魚博物館; pinyin: Qīxīng Cháiyú Bówùguǎn) is a museum in Xincheng Township, Hualien County, Taiwan.[1] The museum is close to Chihsingtan Beach and is dedicated to dried bonito fish (katsuobushi).[2]


The museum was once a Japanese Katsuobushi factory which produced small dried fish flakes that would then be used in many Japanese dishes. It was then reopened as a museum in 2003.[3]


The museum is accessible east from Beipu Station of the Taiwan Railway Administration.[citation needed]
