Shinokubo, the Korean town in Tokyo
Posted by: misol
If you feel like having Korean dishes, you could try Shinokubo.
Shinokubo station is on JR Yamanote line, takes about 6 min from JR Ikebukuro station.
Near Shinokubo station, there is a local Korean town, so that you can get a glimse of Korea while you are in Japan. In Shinokubo, you may hear a lot of 'Anyong haseyo'('hello' in Korean) around. The atmosphere is a bit different from any other places in Japan. It's more energetic and dynamic... I think ;D
You could find many Korean restaurants, K-pop shops (selling Korean-pop idol products) and Korean markets.
What about having Samgyopsal for dinner tonight at Shinokubo? ><
* Samgyopsal consists of sliced pork belly meat, cooked on a grill. It's very popular Korean dish!
