Charming streets filled with murals
Jun 2020 • Friends
I really enjoyed walking around here and checking out the various wall murals, artsy corners as well as traditional houses and stores. Had a nice bingsu - shaved ice korean dessert with red beans to cool off from the heat. A lot of stores and restaurants were closed during the time I visited due to corona virus; however, I was lucky the streets were not packed with many tourists and people. Coming here offered a little escape into the past. I recommend visiting this artsy village when you are in Seoul.

Noisy tourists has become a big issues here. There are not much see anymore. A lot of murals are cleared by the residents. But still, it is a cute village with cute restaurants to dine in.

Lost in a beautiful cute village`
Sep 2019
I reached Ihwa Mural Village around 5.30pm via Naksan Park (almost to sunset). Not much crowd which is lovely and i had the opportunity to just sit at one of the stairs waiting for sunset. it was calm, serene and very relaxing to just enjoy the environment and its surroundings.

please be aware of the neighborhood and stay quiet.

Not much to see anymore.
Nov 2019
Most of the murals are already faded. The neighborhood is clean but there is really nothing much to see anymore. There are also vandals written by the residents that they dont like tourist coming anymore because of the noise. Going there was difficult also even though I already hired a taxi from Bukchon Village.

Hilly walk up
Nov 2019 • Family
Be prepared for a strenuous walk up a 45deg incline steep slope as u walk from the subway station to Ihwa Mural Village and Naksan Park.

The murals are scattered far apart throughout the village so be prepared to walk more slopes as u look for the murals.

Delightful way to spend an hour

There weren't so many murals but the neighborhood itself was delightful and sweet to explore. If you have an hour to spend, this would be a great place to go.

Funky local art spot!
Oct 2019
My husband and I decided to head out to Ihwa Mural Village early Saturday morning. We followed the directions found on a few different websites to get there. First things first...it's a good hike up the hill to get to the murals. Wear comfortable shoes! If you have small children just know that it is a walk and that there are even more stairs once you get in to the mural village area itself. Having read a bit about the mural village before going, I knew that a couple of the iconic pieces had been painted over. While sad, there are still more than enough murals to take in that we were not disappointed. The route up to the top and around Iowa Mural Village was well signed and helpful. Some of the murals are a bit generic but there remained enough along the loop, which took us along the Seoul Fortress Wall for a spell, to keep us entertained. There were a number of cafes with great views of Seoul. We enjoyed our visit and would recommend this to people who have explored all the standard sights of Seoul and are looking to branch out to see things off the beaten path.

Nice walk
Oct 2019 • Solo
I stumbled upon this village almost by mistake after hiking along the Seoul Wall. It’s a great walk up and you can include a visit to the Wall Museum, which is interesting and entrance is free. The village itself is just a good place to wonder around and explore some is the small shops, galleries or just look at the street art. Good for photographers.

Disappointing
Aug 2019
Some of the locals were fed up with the visitors so they painted over the more famous murals, Some of them are very childish and obviously painted by amateurs.

Nice and cute place

It's nice to walk around! Be prepared to face some big stairs though.
Also, it's not that big so you'll be finished in no time
