The street which has this wall painting is Yeongnam Daegu-ro street.
This street was a highway which linked the south and north of Korea during the Joseon Dynasty.
It was a major thoroughfare where people traveled and culture was exchanged.
Now the street is a short alley.
And the other photo here is of people making traditional Chinese medicines.
These are Korean foods: bibimbap and topokki.
Bibimbap came in a hot stone bowl full of vegetables and other things together on rice–you mix it and eat it.
Topokki is thick cylindrical shaped thing, which is like rice cakes.
I like both of them.
I found an interesting cafe in Daegu.
The name of it is Mixcafe Booksungro.
It has unique 1950’s kind of atmosphere.
There are several different rooms where you can enjoy your drink.
It is a really nice cafe.
If I lived in Daegu, I will often go there.
I will show several photos here. : )
This beautiful flower is Wisteria.
My friend Enchi took this photo at Byodoin temple in Uji Kyoto.
Wisteria is ‘Fuji’ in Japanese.
Now it is in season.
There are many places famous for Fuji in Japan.
And Fuji festivals are held.
I heard that Kawachi-Fujien in Kitakyushu city and Susanoo shrine in Yame city, Fukuoka and Karatsu castle in Saga are famous places around here to see Fuji.
I haven’t visited them yet, but I want to.
I came back to Japan already.
But I will continue posting about Korea along with Japanese staff.
This Jingolmok alley is the most representative alley of Daegu’s so-called modern culture alleys.
And it preserves the look as it was 100 years ago.
This is Bulgogi.
It is a famous Korean meat dish.
‘Bul’ means fire and ‘gogi’ means meat.
It is good to eat wrapped in lettuce leaves.
It was delicious and not expensive.
I am staying in the town called Daegu.
It takes a little over one hour from Busan airport.
I walked around the center of town.
There are many kinds of alleys, like ‘shoes alley’, ‘cafe alley,’ ‘jewelry street’, ‘hardware ally,’ ‘fashion street’,,,and many more.
It is an interesting town.
