I'm so much intrigued about this huge replications...a palace for porcelain? The park is widely open for public viewing and sightseeing. But inside the palace was empty and closed. But it's worthy to visit the place. Enjoy driving and be safe while on the road.

It was a disappointment though. I thought there was some display of porcelain but everything was close except for a shop that was selling food & etc. There were just many European-inspired buildings good for taking photographs.

A beautiful space with magnificent buildings. We went on a Saturday and I thought there would be more activities but most of the buildings were closed and nothing really happening. The pottery making was lots of fun though and the instructor was kind and helpful. Worth visiting and bringing a picnic to enjoy on the expansive lawns.

The Arita Porcelain Park is not very accessible. We went by car and it’s much easier this way. There’s no entrance fee and you can spend 1 hour or more, depending what you plan doing there. The Zwinger Palace is beautiful, very photogenic. I don’t know if you can visit inside, but when we went, it was not possible. Behind it you can find a beautiful garden and even some ducks on a pond. The Park also have restaurants, porcelain shops, and some activities like doing your own vase. It worth a visit despite being a little far.

View is beautiful, buildings are a bit old and run down but still looks great and give that classy European feel. It’s a great place to spend about an hour to walk around and take some photos. Unfortunately this place had became a tourist shopping spot instead of a place to relax. During our visit, many long tour buses unloading dozens of loud speaking tourists, hoarding photo spots. Taking numerous shots at the same angle until one find a satisfying shot.
