Next one is the 4th sector, which is called Story Garden. If you go along the road between the pond in Chilpokji, you can get here. This is a garden used the hill of old place. In spring you can see the Japanese apricot flower, while in fall you can see the leaves. It is beloved place by many people that 2nd sector, bamboo road is located. In the middle of story garden, there is Changnyungwheegunjaesa, which has historical significance with its building. Seokjin Kim died for his country at here refusing Japanese peerage title when Japanese annexation of Korea. It is cultural property number 40 of Korea. If you visit here, praise the soul of ancestor. Why not? If you walk a little more upward, you can see the 11th sector, Moon Reflecting Pond and 3rd sector, stone bridge. But, yes… I never know my lucky. There was no water in the pond because the day was cleaning day. So we could not film it, but if you are here, look around the Pond, fall and a fountain . It is beautiful If you go up the wooden stairs behind the stone bridge, and if you go down, you can see 12 sector, which is so called brown garden. It has great view from the top stair which you should not miss. Brown garden meaning the Garden of brown color. Because here are many reeds and flame Grass.
