Busan has many mountains, and Samgwangsa Temple is near the mountain. If you walk here, you can feel like walking on a hill. But this place is very steep and has high stairs, so it's not easy to walk. However, if you look at the lantern, it is fun to see the place if you walk slowly. On a crowded weekend evening. It was not easy to take a picture without people background. It took patience. Waiting for a moment without a person as long as possible, trying to snatch and shoot that moment. ^^

After climbing the stairs, the lanterns, which cannot be counted, are arranged by color. Are all these lanterns simple ornaments? No. It is a lantern containing many people's wishes. The price depends on the size of the lantern, but many write down their wishes, wishes and wishes and hang them on the lantern. The sheer number felt enormous to me. It was a wonderful experience to see the lantern above my head. It seems certain that this is a landscape that is not easily seen anywhere in the world.
