‘Snowscape’ of Jeonju

 

The season of snow and light is here again. This week, I’ll introduce the places where you can stroll as if you’re free from worldly cares, while cherishing the vivid ‘snowscape’ of Jeonju.

 

During Daytime: Jeonju Hanok Village, Jeonghyesa Temple, Moaksan Mountain

 

Jeonju Hanok Village

Jeonghyesa Temple

The snowscape of Jeonju is unique. Walk to the Omokdae Pavilion and appreciate the vastness of the snow-covered Hanok Village under your feet. I also recommend visiting Jeonghyesa Temple. It’s in the middle of the city, but it seems as if I’ve just entered the Korean Narnia. If you’re looking for more serenity and a leisurely walk, visit the nearby snow-capped Moaksan Mountain. After a busy year, the mountain is hibernating, silent. Time stopped flowing here, so that I can finally afford to walk the beautiful mountain trail.

Night View: Donggosa Temple

Located in front of the Jeonju Train Station, the illuminated Chutmajung-gil is more beautiful at night. The traditional Korean style pavilion located in the Jeonbuk National University, Munhoeru, is one of the newest additions to the nightscape of Jeonju. The reflection of the illuminated pavilion over the pond and the vibrant atmosphere of the university lightens up the stroll into the winter night. I recommend ending this small trip at the Donggosa Temple. Looking over the glittering city covered in snow is reinvigorating. The beautiful memories of the Jeonju ‘snowscape’ will fuel my everyday life to come.
