  • Information
    Introduction
    Namsangol Hanok Village was opened in 1998 on the north side of Namsan Mountain in the center of the capital. This village has five restored traditional Korean houses, a pavilion, traditional garden, performance arts stage and a time capsule plaza, making it a perfect spot for both locals and tourists to take a leisure walk. Upon entering from the front gate, visitors will get a taste of the traditional life while escaping from the bustling city life of modern times. The traditional garden with its pavilion and the traditional houses create a peaceful ambiance before the forested Namsan Mountain. A time capsule commemorating Seoul’s 600 Year Anniversary was buried in 1994 at the highest point of the village and is scheduled to be reopened four hundred years later in 2394.

    The five hanok houses were remodeled after the traditional houses of Joseon Dynasty and over a range of social classes, from peasants to aristocrats. The furniture in the houses is arranged to help guests understand the daily lives of the past, and the clean, traditional houses, as well as their antique items provide a great photo op. To protect these fragile heritages, only one of the hanok houses is open to the publice. The house of Yoon-ssi of Okin-dong has been transformed into Yoon's Tearoom, where guests can enjoy traditional tea and refreshments.

    Namsangol Hanok VIllage also has many traditional games and performances to participate in. Traditional games that you may try include neolttwigi (seesaw jumping), tuhonori(arrow throwing) and yutnori (traditional board game). A traditional marriage ceremony takes place during the weekends at Bak Yeong Hyo's Residence. The traditional marriage ceremony is an interesting event for both Koreans and foreigners and many gather to watch.
