Public members are invited to visit the tourist attraction and appreciate the Chinese written art by master Yu.

During Mother’s Day weekend on May 12 and 13, 2PM to 4PM, audiences are encouraged to choose a Chinese character that stands for “affection” for the calligraphers performing at the site to write down on a square scroll.
