  • Festival based Dong 2 exit of route 1 in the 2-minute walk and come around and exotic gate herbal scent can be cast. "Omiya" Korea trip purpose one also is seeking one person tech tech. Spreading traditional Chinese medicine at the storefront or dry, not infusing in them and a good smell. Is slow to observe the day Korea temperatures and minus the cold as cold, has been shaking. "Omiya" 600 g (30,000 won) returned early, bought shrimp dried 3 bags next to the dry market.
