The focus of this seminar will be on inviting you to the joy of spring in Jeju!
Feel the colors of Jeju in Jeju Cherry Blossom Festival
The petals of Jeju’s King Cherry Tree blossoms are the largest and most luxurious among all cherry blossoms. The peak of the King Cherry Tree blossoms lasts for only 2-3 days. Embrace the first week of April by visiting Jeju Cherry Blossom Festival in Jeonnong-ro, Jangjeong-ri, Aeweol-eup to see the beauty and feel the joy of spring in Jeju.
Jeju Canola Flower Festival
The joy of spring in Jeju continues with the bright color of yellow all around the island. The canola flower is one of the flowers of spring that represent Jeju. In the southern region where the climate remains warm, even by Jeju’s standard, the bright yellow canola flowers start to bloom at the end of winter and last throughout spring. Canola flowers are found everywhere in Jeju, and they are known to have been planted in large volumes in Jeju since the 1960s. This is because they grow well, even in cold and humid weather, and are highly suited for Jeju’s barren soil.
However, fewer people have been growing canola flowers in Jeju since the 1980s, and the festival was introduced in 1983 to promote the beauty of canola flowers. It started as the “Grand Canola Flower Party,” which was held alternately in Jeju-si and Seogwipo-si. In 2016, the name was changed to the Jeju Canola Flower Festival, and the festival ground was established in Gasi-ri, Pyoseon-myeon in Seogwipo-si.
