Huam-dong is wedged into a steep valley on the southern slope of Namsan Mountain, just below Seoul’s old city walls. The steep hillsides and streams flowing down the mountain discouraged large-scale settlement. After Japan’s forced annexation of Korea in 1910, however, many wealthy Japanese settled in the area, which was near major institutions of imperial power such as the colonial central bank, the government-general, the railroad and the sprawling Japanese army camp at Yongsan. Their homes blended Western exterior elements with Japanese interior elements, including tatami mats. These homes, called “culture houses” or munhwa jutaek, reflected Japanese efforts to Westernize in the early 20th century.

The neighborhood is old yet very calm, simple, and bright. It was like walking in a safe maze where we used to love to wander in childhood.
Hope you enjoy the walk, thanks!
