One of the most impressive point among those temples in this survey was the entrance road.
Unlike the temples in other area, the entrance road was exceptionally long to the main building.
We needed to walk for a while. I think there must be a reason for this long road to the temple, for example, spiritual readiness, etc.
I began to walk, but at that very moment to walk I found the standing board for the tree designated as a natural memorial plant. It was a tree lying on the cliff. The name of this tree was ‘Song Ak’. It was known as a Japanese Ivy.
Maybe this tree looks much more bigger than the usual ivy.
So I took some photos of ‘Song Ak’ tree.
At first I didn’t notice that was a tree, I thought it as some kind of grasses covering the cliff.
As getting the closer, the clearer the appearance of the tree was.
The Song Ak Tree was designated as the natural memorial plant , because this area of Gochang was the northern limitation line of this tree. A botanist would interest in this plant.
After looking at ‘Song Ak’ tree, I entered into the road to the temple.
The road was nice, and walking along the road was pleasant.
The stream along the road was exceptionally awesome. Especially the reflected trees on the water was so beautiful.
I was walking on the road with hearing the water flow.
Someone looked like peeing on the stream, I was surprised. As getting closer, that someone was a women. She was just looking at the flow of the stream. Even what I saw now would be not a truth.
In the middle of the road, there was an one pillar gate.
The road was continued after passing through the one pillar gate.
Most of all trees made me calm and peaceful.
It was really nice experience to walk through the green trees.
