Seodaemun Prision

After a little work time on Sunday we were able to escape to checkout the Seodaemun Prison. This place was pretty interesting to see. The prison was opened in October 1908 and was used by the Japanese to house about 500 anti-colonial Korean activists. The really interesting thing about this place is that after 1945 (Japanese annexation) the amount of history is very slim.  The prison wasn't closed until 1987. 

I just had to document the random gas masks that you find around the city!

This is where the hangings occurred. You weren't allowed to take any pictures inside but it was really eerie to in the building.
