Dorasan Station is the closest operational South Korean railway station to North Korea, with the border only about 2 kilometers away. It is in a restricted civilian zone, and access is controlled by the military; proper identification needs to be presented and there is a security screening. It is planned that if the two Koreas normalize relations (or even reunify), Dorasan Station would be used by the public as the crossing point to North Korea. Inside the station, there is even an entrance to a platform for trains bound for Pyongyang (currently North Korea's capital), as well as an immigration checkpoint (currently unused, obviously). The station's most notable visitor is George W. Bush, who visited in 2002.

This is a sensitive area and Anaheim Ducks Towel Invasions does not recommend future towel invasions of this location.
