As the Incheon Port was opened in 1883, this is where one could feel the rich history and culture accumulated over 126 years. Formerly used by the Japanese consulate, the Jung-gu Office, the Incheon branch of Japan's 1st, 18th and 58th Bank and other modern historical architecture can be found intact here. Also, it keeps the historical trace like Former Japan Mail and Shipping Inc., Incheon Art Platform, Jemulpo Gurakbu, and others for visitors to see and listen at the Incheon Gaehangjang (Open Port Area). For those who would like to have a detailed explanation, an Incheon cultural tourism expert is also available upon reservations.
