After climbing the hill and visiting Omokdae I crossed over a highway to visit the Jaman Mural Village. This colorful village is built on the slope of a hill and is sort of like a smaller version of the Gamcheon Cultural Village in Busan but with more of an emphasis on murals. I decided to hike up the slope of the hill to reach the top of the village first and then slowly make my way down to the bottom.
As you can guess from the name, the buildings of the Jaman Mural Village are covered in murals. Some of the buildings are houses while others are cafes and other businesses that cater to visitors. As for the murals themselves, there’s quite a variety. You can find painting of famous characters from anime and manga, depictions of celebrities, scenes from movies, and a lot of ones that come from Korean painters flexing their artistic muscles. Not too many people were visiting the Jaman Mural Village that day so I got to explore it and take photos without having to be concerned about tourist crowds.
