Slow City JOAN is where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of nature as the Bukhangang River and the Namhangang River meet and flow slowly here and experience traditional values honoring the spirit of Dasan Jeong Yak-yong, the man of integrity. It is located on the inner side of a curvy path of the village. Slow City JOAN, where aesthetics of slowness can be found, also offers various experiences, such as sharing the natural food ingredients obtained by respecting and taking into consideration the times of nature. Check out the website before you visit here as the experience programs differ by town. As its name implies, you can learn the true aspect of Slow City JOAN by taking a tour of it at a slow pace. Ride a bike on the riverside trail in the Garden of Water feeling the wind from the river; or take a walk on Dasan Path where you might naturally feel gratitude for nature. You will feel moved by the beauty of slowness by slowing down yourself in line with the speed of nature.

Bukhangang Makguksu Dakgalbi (Buckwheat Noodles & Spicy Stir-Fried Chicken)
At this restaurant, you can enjoy charcoal grilled spicy chicken and buckwheat noodles with a wideopen view of the Bukhangang River. When buckwheat noodles are served, eat noodles without any sauce first; mix noodles with a small amount of mustard and sauce and taste it; and, lastly, pour radish water kimchi into your bowl to the level right above noodles. This is how you can enjoy three different tastes with one menu.
