3. Icheon Cerapia

 

Cerapia = Ceramic + Utopia. Icheon is known as the center of Korean ceramic manufacturing. If the weather wasn’t that cold, I would stay longer outdoor to take more photos. There are a few exhibition halls indoor that display many interesting and beautiful ceramic artworks. So pretty 🙂
