This is one of two water gates in the fortress area. The water wasn’t flowing strongly when we were there. Only through 3 of the openings. A few restaurants off to the side of the gate?

Good track and scenery, garden and gate. Nice landscape, you can shoot bow and arrow and it will be fun. You can also get to taste traditional Korean tea.
