hkskyline's 2011 INCHEON, SOUTH KOREA Photos

Incheon is located just west of Seoul along the coast. While it is an independent city, it is closely linked with Seoul, being home to its main international airport. The subway lines even reach here after an hour's journey. The terminus station is nothing interesting architecturally, but is conveniently situated across from Chinatown's Paeru (traditional gate).





















Euiseondang Shrine















A staircase leads the uphill climb towards Jayu Park.









Past the 3rd Paeru is Jayu Park, a green oasis in the heart of Incheon.









Memorial to the 100th Aniversity of Amity between Korea and America





The other monument to American domination is the Statue of General MacArthur, built in 1957 to commemorate the Incheon Landing Operation.







There's no shortage of military monuments in this park.













Hongyemun was built starting in 1936 to support the growing Japanese population.









Koreans can eat very spicy foods, hence I wasn't surprised to see hot peppers being put out to dry on this sunny day.













Incheon Anglican Naedong Church

















The Jemulpo Club was a social club for foreigners during the open port era.











The Samgukji Mural Street is a 135-m long wall that depicts 77 scenes from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms.







The rest of Chinatown is comprised of lowrises.















Korea was at the crossroads of the Chinese Empire and Japan. This staircase marks the border between the Qing and Japanese concessions. Even the lamps were designed differently on each side.

Being a port city, a number of historic buildings are still standing along Incheon's streets today. Some have been converted into museums.

Bank of Japan #58





The Incheon Open Port Modern Architecture Museum utilizes the former Japanese Bank #18. It contains models of historic buildings, many of which have been lost.











The Incheon Open Port Museum used to be the Bank of Japan #1. Built in 1899, it was the depository for the Japanese consulate. Today, it hosts exhibits from the open port era.



























I helped myself to an upper floor conference room at the Harbor Park Hotel to see the city from above.
