Ginkgo and concert, Gyeongju Ungok Seowon



Concert near an ancient Ginkgo tree.

Location: Gyeongju Ungok Seowon (Confucian academy, 1784) in South Korea. 

Along with its original purpose for education, the academy still functions as a major site for clan activities of the descendents of the sage revered here.
Gyeongju is Korea's ancient capital for nearly a millennium and is one of the richest cultural and historic areas in Asia, including UNESCO World Heritage sites.
