Located in the mountainous mid-western region of South Korea, the Baekje Historic Areas comprises eight archaeological sites dating from 475 to 660.

They represent the later period of the Baekje Kingdom, one of the three earliest kingdoms on the Korean peninsula, during which they were at the crossroads of technological, religious, cultural and artistic exchanges between the ancient East Asian kingdoms in Korea, China and Japan.

This is the third edition of the exhibition, with the first at the SRT Suyeo Train Station in Seoul and the second at the Korean Cultural Center in Tokyo.
