Travelling to North Korea

Hey, I am planning to go to Japan and China in the Summer and I thought I should also try North Korea. Has anybody got any travel information? How to get to North Korea either from Japan or China?
Your help will much appreciated.

From what I understand, you can only get so far across the border into the DMZ as a part of a tour group. This is from South Korea side. I’m not sure how it works from the Chinese side. You can fly or boat from either Japan or China into
S. Korea…no problem there.

Thank Billy, I will look into it. I have found two travel Dutch agencies and I will call me just in case they can arrange something for me and joint the group, or reschedule my trip to North Korea first ans then to the other places.

From what I read in Japanese, more can be seen than the DMZ. One Japanese tourist (can speak some Korean) has even ridden a train from Pyngyanag to China (because he became sick he got this opportunity) You can travel there from South Korea or from Japan only as part of a tour group.

Nektarios, here is the Japanese site I read yesterday.
Sightseeing in North Korea
I just wanted to add that not every link works on the above site, but there are a couple of tour companies, whose links work.

I googled with “北朝鮮 観光.” I suggest googling to read more about this topic. There are just too many pages to read.
