  • Avenue is often being compared to the streets of Tokyo. Leading fashion shops and certainly don't feel came in Seoul, if you look at it. And that Seoul and Korea may be no sense to shop and can't store "feel to appeal at least Japanese tourists visit here. But fortunately the neat it seems better so shop a little while walking. I think store shopping for busy little felt trail especially have an umbrella on a rainy day, but women should see a lot. Not too hard to kill time or break so far away from the main street 1 muscle in many cafes, etc.,. In Seoul, Insa-dong, Myeong-dong and Dongdaemun shopping posted on how tourism magazines, but this city is often written just a fashionable trend.. I don't know just as tourists from Japan feel attraction how many people in such a cosmopolitan atmosphere. Charm of each spot, where attracted by the taste rather like no other. More variety compared the allure of this city may be engraved.

  • Daikan-Yama in Korea? And what Aoyama? Like the atmosphere, stylish still shop there. Not every time but if you go to Korea, but sometimes go. Many cafes.

  • As far as I know today Seoul's trend Boulevard where you can think I'm not. Go on a weekday it seems more foreign tourists, but it's still a heck of a lot where the store is pretty close to the vertical street cafes to watch the fun.
