Introduction
Established in 1918, Jumunjin Lighthouse is the first light house in Gangwondo Province. The lighthouse is 3m in max diameter and 10m in height with white mortar covered the exterior wall.

The building shows the early structure of the country’s lighthouse architecture, which is a great value in terms of the nation’s architectural history. The light signal blinks at 15-second interval and can be identified from 37km away. The lighthouse was once destroyed during Korean War and restored in 1951.

Jumunjinhang Harbor, where the lighthouse is located, is 210,000㎡ in size. After becoming a half-way station of Busan-Wonsan Route in 1917, both passenger and freight vessels made an entrance to the harbor.
