The special space created by the history of the Naval port and the beauty of the cherry blossoms, and the Jinhae Gunhangje, which unfolds in it, are recognized by the world as a festival with a solid story.
After 10 a.m., many people take photos of Jinhae’s main cherry blossom attractions, responding to the bright spring greetings handed by the cherry blossoms in Jinhae.
No matter who comes alone or with family, lovers or friends, Jinhae’s cherry blossoms don’t lose that bright smile.
Seems like Jinhae is the happiest place in the world during the Gunhangje Festival. Lying on the sunbeds of the Gyeonghwa Station Park, feeling the sunlight through the cracks in which tens of thousands of cherry blossoms have been obscured will also be a new cherry blossom play that can only be felt during the Jinhae Gunhangje Festival.
Restaurants around the venue are busy. It seems that the Jinhae Gunhangje Festival is giving a lot of life to the local business community.
There are many hidden restaurants in Jinhae. At Jinhae Central Market, you can taste fresh fish.
At Bokgaecheon Jibap Street on the road from Jungwon Rotary to Yeojwacheon Stream, visitors can enjoy the authentic taste of house rice and meet the long history of gukbap restaurants in the Gyeongwha market. Jinhae’s food is as plentiful as the full bloom of cherry blossoms.
After sunset, Jinhae Gunhangje offers a different feeling than during the day. The Yeojwacheon Starlight Festival, which will be lit at 7 p.m., is reminiscent of the cherry blossom path in heaven led by angels.
The 1.5-kilometer-long Yeojwacheon Stream’s emotional lighting and structure create a cherry blossom path that brings back people who came during the day.
The edge of the Yeojwacheon Stream, decorated with colorful umbrellas, does not go against visitors’ expectations.
The emotional glow created in the Jehwangsan Park, also known as Mount Owl that climbs up monorails, is catching visitors’ feet until sunrise time the following day.
Major Jinhae Gunhangje Festival events are also expected to begin this week. The multimedia maritime firework show, which will be held at the port of Sokcheeon at 8 p.m. on April 4, will be a splendid time that connects the sea and sky of Jinhae Bay.

As there will be a preliminary flight at 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on the 5th, there is already a tip that noise can be generated at this time through local schools and administrative welfare centers, but it needs to be understood by citizens.
