The main building in Seoul is a traditional Korean cultural space renovated by Jeong Yeong-jin, a human cultural asset, from a hanok with a history of 130 years. Traditional flags, fences, pavilions, chimneys, and jangdokdae are holding the blue sky with pine trees, creating a harmonious Korean-style house. Passing through the elegant tall gate, as you see the jangdokdae, a small but clean hanok will be revealed, and the pine trees and bamboo trees added to the natural beauty, while the loving Gomusin placed on the stone brings back beautiful memories.
Rakkojae is a place where the customs of the aristocrats in the past are melted in various places, creating a wonderful atmosphere by carefully reviving the pavilion, ponds, and daecheongmaru. Especially, Daecheongmaru adds the beauty of the margins of hanok to give you a sense of refreshment. As the old scholars did, sitting on the pavilion makes the time flow slow and the wind that passes over the Sotdae feels special.
In addition, you can experience the beauty of Korean tradition with various programs such as tea ceremony, jjimjilbang, royal robes, and kimchi-making along with traditional Korean food. Rakkojae's accommodation, reminiscent of a nobleman's house in the Joseon Dynasty, is well-kept and comfortable that it is comparable to a luxury hotel, and the natural jade-covered ondol rooms and firewood jjimjilbangs made of cheongito provide a healthy journey for many guests.
