Welcome to Jepara

With the decline in demand from international furniture outlets, there are fewer resident expats in town, but Jepara still hosts buyers from all over the world. As a result, this is one of the more cosmopolitan towns in rural Java.

The town's broad avenues and small gangs (alleys) lined with homes that open onto back-door canals, together with the nearby beaches, make it a tranquil spot to take a break from the road. Jepara is also a major gateway to the Karimunjawa Islands.
