Chongryon School

Chongryon School (東濃朝鮮初中級学校) is an abandoned North Korean kindergarten + middle + high school we visited. It seems that all these North Korean schools like to be on top of the hill or mountain to guarantee an impressive view.

Inside the school we found some packaging’s of sex enhancement drinks from Pyongyang, wonder why such a conservative place would produce these kind of product and leave them inside a middle school.

If you are interested in a little more background about those North-Korean schools in Japan, check my article about the Abandoned school in Matsumoto.

  • Did you go to the lowest floor with the music room and the chemistry lab? Pretty spooky, even on a sunny day…

    • Actually I didn’t found any rooms downstairs! Do you have a picture of how it looks like?

      • Both photos in the second to last row of my article were taken in the chemistry lab and the video I posted ends in the music room. The lowest floor wasn’t underground, but there were some steps going down near the Samboso boxes.

        • Oh I can see it now! Yeah I actually went there but my pictures are actually no that interesting. About the Samboso boxes, I just bought Viagra in Pyongyang, just for the fun of it; no way I’m going to consume it!

            Six years after this comment….I came to report its still standing. As someone who used to live in Korea, I found this place ultra fascinating. Seeing the the board where Kim Il Sung and Kim Jung Il’s head used to be was awesome. There were a lot of propaganda books still in decent condition.
