Smallish number of shops, about 50+. Prefer Mashiko in Japan. If you hunt around, you can find something reasonable for $50. A good piece costs about $200-300. I took a subway to Gangbyeon, then took express bus to Icheon, then took a taxi to village. The express bus passes by the village. It goes into the mountains, then makes a... More

In the body of water are wonderful porcelain pots of various size and shape. the works of art displayed out side are beautiful. My favorite the the metal tree with porcelain bells.... More

The newly opened art center at the top of the complex is extraordinary. If you have any time at all go to see this 'expo'

My husband and I took a local bus from Gangnam Bus interchange (Gangbyeon subway station) and the ride was cheap and comfortable. You get off at Icheon bus terminal, and just hop into a cab to go to the Wirld Ceramucs Center. My husband and I thought that we could walk... So we did and enjoyed ourselves. But I won't... More
