Details

Jinhae Gunhangje Festival is Korea’s biggest spring festival, attracting at least 2 million visitors every year. The festival first began as a memorial service to commemorate Joseon period’s most noteworthy naval admiral Yi Sun-sin and has now grown to become a festival enjoyed by everyone. Pack up and get ready to enjoy one of the most spectacular events in Korea surrounded by unbelievably stunning cherry blossoms!

Yeojwacheon Stream

The area around Yeojwacheon Stream is well known as one of Jinhae’s best spots for viewing cherry blossoms. It is also the location of the bridge where the two leading characters, Gwanu and Chaewon of “Romance (2002),” MBC’s TV series, first met as tourists who came to Jinhae to enjoy Jinhae Gunhangje Festival. After the episode was aired, the bridge instantly became popular and widely known as the Romance Bridge. Each April, the entire city of Jinhae is filled with cherry blossoms, but the Yeojwacheon Stream area has the most beautiful cherry blossoms which makes it a prime tourist attraction.

Gyeonghwa Station (Cherry Blossom Road)

Gyeonghwa Station is a small railway station in Gyeonghwa-dong, Jinhae-gu, Changwon-si, Gyeongsangnam-do. The station is neighbored by Seongjusa Station to the north and Jinhae Station to the south. Railway services in and out of Gyeonghwa Station have been discontinued as of February 2015. The train used to stop at the station during the Jinhae Gunhangje Festival, but now it only makes stops at Masan, Changwon and Jinhae stations.

In April, rows of cherry trees bloom along the 800 meter-long railway extending from the station all the way to Sehwa Girls’ High School. Along with Anmingogae Road and Yeojwacheon Bridge, Gyeonghwa Station is one of the top three spots in Jinhae for taking photos of the cherry blossoms. The area is often featured in Korean movies and dramas such as the film “Boy Goes to Heaven (2005)” and the drama “Spring Waltz (2006).”

If you’re coming from Seoul, it’s probably a five-hour trip to Jinhae, but trust me, it’s WORTH IT! Let my photos give justice to this post. Make sure to check the event dates to catch the cherry blossoms at its best! Enjoy!

Ok we planned to go there because on the date that we will be in korea – no cherry flower will be bloom in Seoul area yet( base on the forecast). So we took a day tour package to Jinhae, spend 5hours from Seoul and another 5 hours coming back. We only spend about 4 hours at the festival ground – but trust me it is worth it. Since this festival is only happen once a year (normally 1-10 April each year) so check your date if you want to go there. If you have a lot of days in korea, maybe you can go on your own. It is not near to Seoul but nearer to Busan. But if you don’t really have time, maybe you can taken the tour package like us.
