DALIAN, China -- A huge Japan-themed commercial and residential complex will open in Dalian, in China's northeastern Liaoning Province, this weekend.

A Kyoto-style township has been built inside the 600,000-sq.-meter complex, making it one of the biggest in the country. Dalian Shuyuan Group, a local real estate developer, is promoting the project, which was built at a cost of 6 billion yuan ($925 million). Japanese companies such as Panasonic hope to turn the area into a hub to promote Japanese goods.
