  • And the South Koreans will feel like you are in Korea since flying from Japan to foreign language is Korean town and other high-foreign. Of course clean Korea food and cosmetics are featured! Kimchi is delicious with a taste of home!

  • Didn't eat authentic cuisine of Korea and Korea-related goods, wanted to buy, so I went. It was where young people and have been to tsuruhashi in Osaka, but unlike it, either. Loitering about diet, popular shop was early in the queue and will be taken behind. Like souvenirs, cosmetics and Hallyu star, differs little from the tours in Korea.

  • 除了韓國物品是大特色,方便的集各式消費於一條街,業務用的超市價格更是讓人驚艷,山手線和中央總武線分列兩端,實在太方便了,唯一希望不要有印度人。  more »
