The appointment of the Joseon Tongsinsa(Diplomatic Mission)
400 years have passed since the Joseon Tongsinsa (Diplomatic Mission) departed to Japan.
Joseon Tongsinsa was composed of 500 people, including Literary scholars, artists, performers, Doctors, etc., and traveled 4,400km from Hanyang to Edo of Japan.
They influenced Japan a lot by introducing and transferring our writings, drawings, music, Medical treatments, etc.
The ceremony of appointment was reenacted in Myeongjeongjeon Hall of Changgyeonggung Palace.
The ceremony includes a king appointing positions to each of the diplomats.

Joseon Tongsinsa opened the Korean culture boom years ago by disseminating the excellence of Korean culture. While celebrating the 400th anniversary, we hope a message of peace would be delivered to Japan.
