Introduction : Sangyujae is known to be the oldest traditional Korean style house in Jeongseon, Gangwon-do Province. The house is a tangible cultural asset of Gangwon-do Province, and the mulberry tree beside the stone wall is a monument of Gangwon-do Province. It is impressive that the tree is 25m tall and still looks healthy with many branches though it is over 600 years of age. Entering the gate, you can see the Sarangchae house from the front yard. The owners of the house live in the Anchae (the main house) which is beyond the Sarangchae. People can play folk games such as Tuho and Jegichagi in the yard covered with pebbles. The house looks like a small museum with old pieces which had been used by our ancestors in their daily life such as treadmill, wooden rice chest and large wooden bowl displayed in the yard. You can taste coffee and traditional teas in the cafe positioned on one side of the yard. The traditional Ondol rooms are furnished with clean bathrooms to be used conveniently by modern people. However, there is no TV in the room because the owners of Sangyujae consider that it will be better to experience the life of ur ancestors who had lived without a TV and have more conversation with the company who have come together to the house. Sangyujae is very close to Jeongseon Arirang Market, just 5 minutes’ walk away, which is the best spectacle in Jeongseon located in Jeongseon-eup. In Jeongseon Arirang Market, you can have a taste of healthy foods in Jeongseon such as Gondeurebap, Kotdeungchigi Noodles, Tadpole Noodles, Buckwheat Crepe and Surichwi Rice Cake.
