So today I am going to visit 의림사 Uirimsa Temple, one of Masan's "9 Scenery". Getting there is quite easy. From Masan, just take bus 74 to 마산중앙요양병원 Hospital, shown here, or you could try waiting for bus 74-1 from 진동면 Jindong-myeon. I love these countries that send regular buses to everywhere, even to nowhere.
The opening of Uirimsa Valley. All the fields now are this beautiful gold color showing it's harvest season.
The road leading up to Uirimsa. (사 "-sa" means Buddist Temple)

A man-made lake up the valley from Uirimsa Temple.
Looking our from near the top of the mountain at the end of 의림사 Uirimsa Valley, looking southeast. From here you can see 진동면 Jindong-myeon, 저도교 Jeodo Bridge in 구복리 Gubok-ri, and even out across the sea to 거제시 Geoje.
Following the path up the valley, I come up to this gazebo on the ridge at a crossroads.
Looking out over 평암리 Pyeongam-ri on my way down the west side of the ridge.
