Chestnut trees can be seen not only in the mountains but also in the compounds of public buildings and around houses in Songchon.

Songchon chestnut, a late-ripening crop, tastes sweet, and the shell is peeled easily. The round and small burs have two or three chestnuts each, which weighs 7-8g.

The flowers come into full blossom in the mid- or late June, and the fruit ripens between late September and early October.

Called medicinal chestnut from olden times, the fruit is used as a material for preparing traditional dishes.

Songchon silk, representative of the Phyongan provincial area, was renowned not only in the country but also in the neighbouring countries.

The local people, encouraging silkworm raising by cultivating mulberry trees that grow well in their region, a basin surrounded by high and low mountains, inherited their unique silk producing methods down through the generations.

The Songchon Silk Mill furnished with modern equipment is now carrying forward the tradition.

Songchon is one of the major tobacco-cultivating areas for its favourable weather and soil conditions.

For its unique aroma, Songchon tobacco has been famous from olden times.

It has been called Golden Thread Tobacco for the small and heart-shaped leaves, when cut, look like golden threads, or Aromatic Tobacco for, if one smokes it, indulgent smokers nearby gather around him to have a taste of it.
