Folk Village - Cheju Island, South Korea

Cheju Island is a beautiful sub-tropic paradise, with a rich culture that's remarkably different then that of the South Korean peninsula. This photo was taken in the old folk village, at a traditional Cheju home that was lived in for more than 300 years. The structure with the thatched-roof is the entranceway to the courtyard of a home which is surrounded by stone walls made of black basalt (lava rock). Traditional Cheju homes are also thatched-roofed and made of black basalt rock. The very large tree was said to be over 600 years old.
