    Fondest memory: No More Cherry-blossom Viewing Here

    Tragically, the Japanese colonists at one time transformed the Changgyong (Palace), one of the five main palaces of the Choson Dynasty, into a leisure facility, including a zoo, botanical garden, etc. But due to the extensive restoration of the original royal residential and governmental structures since
    1983, the palace revived again. The cherry trees, which were planted all around the compound in the colonial days, were eliminated entirely. Instead, there grow over 50,000 plants of pine trees, royal azaleas, apricot trees and other Korean native trees.
