Admiring cherry blossoms is always better next to a stream of water where you can watch them flutter about with the wind and gently land in the water. Yangjaecheon Stream lined with dozens of cherry blossom trees is just that kind of place. Enjoy the Spring breeze as you walk along next to the stream.
