Yanji (or Yeongil in Korean) is the capital city of Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture, within Jilin province of northeastern China. Its population is approximately 398,900. Because of the large Korean population, there is now a law that signs in Yanji be written in Chinese with a Korean translation.


Yanji City is one of the six cities of the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Region, situated in the eastern part of Jilin Province, China. The five other cities are Hunchun, Dunhua, Longjing and Tumen, and the region also has two counties, Antu and Wangqing.

Chinese, Mongolian, Manchu and many other clans took control of it afterwards. It was officially a city part of the People's Republic of China in 1949.

The place that today is called Yanji is part of Manchuria (the word Manchuria was explained in Chinese as the Land of the North-east).


The climate of Yanji is considered as one of the coldest in China. It has the same amount of lakes, rivers, and montains around it as Tumen, Hunchun, and three other cities in Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture.
