The resulting gold rush hastened the village's development into a town, and reached its peak during the Japanese era, Many present features of Jiufen reflect the era under Japanese colonization, with many Japanese inns surviving to this day.
Gold mining activities declined after World War II, and the mine was shut off in 1971. Jiufen quickly went into decline, and the town was mostly forgotten.
In 1989, director Hou Hsiao-hsien's A City of Sadness won acclaim around the world. The nostalgic scenery of Jiufen as seen in the film charmed many people into visiting Jiufen. For the beginning of the 1990s, Jiufen experienced a tourist boom that has shaped the town as a tourist attraction.

Houtong was once a rich small mining town in Ruifang. During its prosperous years, the area produced around 220,000 tons of coal per year, the largest coal output of a single area in Taiwan.
As the coal mining industry began to decline in the 1990s, the area also declined. Young residents started to emigrate to look for other opportunities, and eventually only few hundred residents remained once the mining industry had died out.
However, things started taking a turn for the better from 2008, when a local cat lover organized volunteers to start offering abandoned cats a better life. They posted the cats' pictures online, resulting in an overwhelming response from other cat lovers around the nation. Soon, Houtong became a center for cat lovers as word spread, and the number of cats living there increased – thus reviving a declining village, and transforming it into a tourist destination.
