  • This market should be investigated. They sell dogs as livestock to be cooked and eaten. Absolutely unacceptable.  more »
  • Korean to buy tea to the market here. Lined with traditional Chinese medicine wholesaler, is so unfamiliar in Japan very interesting. Tourists would rather local staff are. Also in fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and meat market, was buzzing with activity.

  • 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.
