There's a mysterious forest in Korea that you can meet gods and goddesses directly. This forest serves as shrine of village deity. This place is protected by Korea National Park, so people can't usually enter this place. Yet twice a year, the entry to this special forest opens to perform ritual ceremony. Finally we met God-looking tree, Murray, Quercus cerrata.

Location: Sungwhang-lim, Wonju-city,Gangwon-do, South Korea.
