Jeju - images from a day off

I am just going to hang a few images here from around the island gained today and will provide further explanation later.

This is a tunnel dug by the Japanese in the unique geological feature during  WWII and from which they used to launch kamikaei attacks on the allied forces.

Recommended natural history trip on Jeju: the '1100 Altitude Wetland' which is a Ramsar site on the side of the mountain - more here
This is the higest part of the island that you can drive to and a number of walks are accessible from here.
