Walking around the morning market, the hawkers are so quiet and polite to customers. The fruits and the grocery stuffs have own culture and the fruits really taste good with low price! It’s a place worth to see!

Glimpse an earlier time period and lifestyle inside this Japanese historic structure, highlighted by views out to the landscaped Japanese garden.
