Korean pilgrims flocked to Shanghai to pledge their resistance to Japans economic aggression
According to Yonhap News Agency, Japans export control measures against South Korea, tensions between South Korea and Japan have escalated, South Koreans have boycotted travel to Japan, many tourists to Shanghai piled up anti-Japanese sites.
The former site of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Korea has become the preferred place for many tourists to make pilgrimages.
Yonhap said that this is the holy place of the Korean anti-Japanese independence movement. About 700 Korean tourists of all ages visit this place every day.
However, after Japan launched a sudden economic provocation to push Korean-Japanese relations to a cliff, the number of visitors exceeded 1000.
Zheng Mou, a junior high school history teacher in South Korea, visited the site of the Provisional Government with his 19-month-old daughter.
On the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the interim government, South Korea was subjected to Japans second (economic) aggression, but I hope South Korea will win this time, he said.
South Korean Nanmou, who visited Shanghai with his second-grade daughter, said that the children were at an age of interest in history. We came comfortably by plane, but the sages who pursued national independence were exiled in Shanghai with full of sorrow and indignation.
It is reported that the interim government of the Republic of Korea was established in Shanghai in 1919. In 1990, the old site was listed as a cultural relic protection unit at the district level in Shanghai.
Since April 1993, when it was officially opened to the outside world, the old site has undergone many renovations and expansion.
