Sea view from the outer harbor of Gampo 감포 last January. Gampo is one of the major fishing harbors somewhere along the eastern coast. Squids and octopus are the main fish species. Unique fishing gears for octopus meet the eye along the pier.
The Japaneses erected a monument to celebrate the building of harbor during the colonial age. It has been neglected at the corner since independence. Gampo is surrounded by hills, so most of the dwellings is nestled in the hillside slopes. Tourists can picture this public bathhouse flourished for a while. The tall chimney and steam sign drawn on it was once the typical scene to attract customers attention. The right one is scene from behind. Already closed down.
Shops are lined up along the street in front of the public bathhouse. The other one shows the locked door of nearby old mill. The backstreet of Gampo afford us glimpses into the ordinary lives of villagers along with the remains of colonial age.
