This is one of the biggest cultural Centre we have been to and every building showcases different arts, crafts and food of the region. Very informational.

I do not understand why there is a charge for entry. The place is filled with shops. It is kind of a shopping centre instead of arts cluster.

Gamut of traditional hands-on workshops: DIY classes, woodworks, tea ceremony, pottery, indigo dyeing, blown glass, etc. Other features include conference center, hotel, canal boat rides, puppet shows, museums, ... It's a cultural complex for learning and appreciating the arts, slowing down, and absorbing everything.
