Jemulpo or Chemulpo (제물포: “Jeh-Mool-Po”), is a harbour front in Incheon, where Korea first opened its gates for visitors in 1883. Its name ‘Jemulpo’ was once a pure Korean word that has been translated into its closest sounding Chinese word (濟䥼浦). The harbour is also a stage for a historic naval battle during the Russo-Japanese War.
