Tree of Old Fishing Village in Ansan

According to the historical marker for this 400-year old tree, the area was the site of a fishing village through the Korean War. After that, the fishing moved down the coast a ways and the villagers focused on farming. Today, it's at least a 20-minute drive to get to anything resembling the coastline; and no sea fishing at all.
