    観光客多い(自分もその内の一人)。前回の韓国旅行では夕方に行ったので門が閉じてた記憶。今回は中に入れて韓国独特の着物?着た人達の守門将交代式を見ることができた。光化門のさらに先の門をくぐるには 3000ウォンを支払う必要がある。有料の門の先に行くとがあったりとかなり広い。何か凄い既視感だったけど実は中に入ったことがあるかも...

    광화문은 경복궁의 정문이다. 광화문은 조선의 법궁에 해당하는 궁궐의 정문으로서 다른 궁궐들의 정문과는 달리 돌로 높은 석축을 쌓고 그 위에 중층구조의 누각을 세워서 마치 성곽의 성문과 같은 격식으로 장대하게 지어졌다. Read more
