  • In production, last year, and this year, the real foliage seems to be naejangsan, "Naejangsan 藏 is a mountain on the border between the city of Jeongsan and Suncanggun. It is one of the five famous mountains of Hunan province (Jirisan, Wolan, Cheonwonsan, and Mountain), and is one of the most widely known spots of maple in Korea for more than 500 years. It was very popular as a tourist destination, but I arrived early in the morning when I moved to the sightseeing car. I was able to use the temporary parking lot and move on the shuttle. Admission is 3,000 yen per adult. At the entrance, there was a photo zone called Nature love, and the leaves are here. Very crowded. The staff were very nice. It wasn't a heavy trail.
