Basically an art village featuring all sorts of murals, particularly manga related. Not as big as the famous ones like Gamcheon in Busan but certainly comes with its own style too. Nice for a bite-sized tour at 1-2 hours.

If you like murals and the atmosphere of art villages, go there. You will find many of your favourite comic figures on the walls, among others. There are also nice coffee places offering fantastic views to the hanok village.

Many cities around the world have more engaging graffiti than Jaman Village. Most of the wall paintings in this village look like they've been drawn by children. There are a few (pictured) that demonstrate a degree of technical skill, but what is entirely missing --...More

Interesting curiosity, basically a small neighbourhood where a lot of the houses have been covered with murals. Don't expect anything to compete with places like the mission district in San Francisco, though... But worth a stroll if you happen to come across it (it's a...More
