  • Children like to go the temple tried to go sightseeing. Well written reviews of other people was a little disappointing, because Monday was a holiday shop, you will be. I wanted to see all the shops. Tension has been raised from adult children, looking at Candy Mountain! In a pickle shop, know what to name articles. Shop filled with nostalgia and sweets as well as played with old toys and play equipment, children were happy. Took Monday off if you choose the day so I thought I saw all shops are good.
