Garden with ancient gazebo and old trees, which are more than 400 years old. It's peaceful garden. There's the house to introduce Chunhyangjeon that is kind of love story composed around 300 years ago. That was interesting.

It is a garden with a pavilion in the middle of the pond. There are activities that my kids really enjoyed like Korea giant swing and other Korean traditional games.
