  • It is located in the Shin-Okubo left the Korean wave, free tenants came to prominence is now 入ri雑jiru I + Asian food shop that feeling. Considerably more goodness in the security aspects too, such as rose. Both weekends and weekdays, and crowded with a lot of people, restaurants seem relatively nowhere thriving. The comparatively narrow width of the road is that many people's stress. I'm walking trail is little bit wider a. And always feel.
