Three sisters have unleashed their creativity on the small Taiwanese village of Huija with a series of colourful murals. The sisters were on a holiday visiting their grandmother when they decided to paint the outside of her home with cartoon characters including Daruma dolls, which are a good luck charm in Japan. On one of the windows they painted a sign that reads: “This is where grandmother lives.”

After that other villagers imitated them and painted there own walls, and soon the whole village was filled with colourful murals.

The village rarely saw tourists but now they have tourists almost everyday. During the weekends, tourists mostly from Hong Kong and China flock the village.
