Jinhae Gunhangje Festival
Every April, the town of Jinhae in Gyeongsangnam-do Province is covered by cherry blossoms. Its streets with 100-year-old buildings turn white and pink with cherry blossom tunnels and raining petals.
During the festival, Korea’s naval academy and navy headquarters in Jinhae will be open to the public. A tour inside the Korea Naval Academy Museum and of naval vessels will be a unique opportunity for visitors to the event. The navy will also allow visitors to try on some rentable navy uniforms.
Finally, the marine band and military parade will be the highlight of the event.
