  • Accompanies the music of Korea, clerks are the double talk in Korea, during a lively and exotic mood rises. Fun in restaurants and cafes, just to hang out.

  • Gone Hallyu boom, no longer the frenzied atmosphere of the previous, but still steeped ethnic atmosphere.

  • Even when crowded by will. It is where people who say well, that's it. People get bored with the ordinary food taste may quite reasonably, so that would be great. Just recently, and Koreans rather than all Asian atmosphere is. As well as Korea, China, Myanmar, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand and Brunei, where it is. This is Japan, and rife in many languages words? Feel it.
