Jepara is know for its furniture industry. Thus it is visited by people who are looking for furniture or are in the furniture business.
There is a chain of islands which seemed to be popular, but didn't get to go as tied down with business.
The city was clean and relatively free of traffic. The wide range of wood products on offer was interesting but hard to follow up if a train or air traveler to the location unless shipping is considered.
The town has a local fair ground area with sea world like area but the presentation needs to worked on. Its a great place for a quiet break from the normal hustle and bustle of city life
Jepara areas surprisingly connected by a good tarmac road enough for two car passing; although not big for two bus passing by.
Clean and non crowded village or small city. The road direction may not be sufficient, but it is there. Even though I never really follow the direction sign because sometime it is different from what my GPS told me. However my GPS is right. I will never reach the area without any GPS guidance; so better arrange some pick up or just trust GPS map (I was using my Nokia Ovi-map). Google map will not be sufficient.
