Korokan (Part 2)...400 years of history of Korokan

 

- Korokan was a guest house belonging to the Dazaifu Government Office, where envoys and visitors from the Tang, Song and Silla dynasties, as well as 17 times envoys to the Tang and Silla dynasties, were treated to food, drink and lodging.

 

- At that time, only government-managed international trade was conducted, and a large number of diplomats and merchants stayed here for many months to engage in diplomatic and trading activities.

 

- For more than 400 years, from the 7th to the early 12th century, Korokan served as a facility for receiving and accommodating envoys from Tang, Song, and Silla dynasties. /
