Annyon Haseyo! This is Il.
In Korea, autumn is deepening, and the minimum temperature is often below 10 ℃, but during the day it is around 20 ℃ and the climate is mild with warm sunlight.

Today, I would like to introduce the symbol of Seoul, "Seoul Tower".
Seoul Tower, which often appeared in the drama "Itaewon Class", is also famous as a location for the drama, but the point is that you can enjoy the beautiful night view of Seoul.
Furthermore, it is very beautiful to take a walk in Namsan Park where Seoul Tower stands and look at Seoul Tower from below!
There are cafes and restaurants in the tower, so you can relax while enjoying the scenery.

In fact, there is a live camera of Seoul Tower, and anyone can see the scenery of Seoul at any time!
It's a difficult time to travel, but please enjoy "Seoul Now" with live video ^^

Annyon Haseyo! It's Il ^^
October is over this week, and it's almost November! In Seoul, the temperature is below 10 ℃ in the morning, and I feel that winter is approaching.

☆ Korea Night Tour ☆
By the way, today I would like to introduce a night view spot that looks even more beautiful in the cold season when the air is clear.
The "Matsushima Maritime Cable Car" in Busan, South Korea's second largest city, is a ropeway on the sea that is rare in Japan. You can swim in the sea from a height of up to 86 meters over a total length of 1.62 km, and you can occupy the beautiful night view of Busan!
Especially at night, the beauty of the night view + the thrill of the sea at night is also added! Some floors are skeletons, so please try it!

◆ Matsushima Marine Cable Car Address: 124-1 Amnam-dong, Seo-gu, Busan Metropolitan City
부산 광역시 서구 암남동 124-1

Did you know that there is a retro boom in Seoul now? ^^
The word "Neutro", which combines NEW and retro, is popular, and the style that mixes good old culture with modern times is popular.

Today I would like to introduce a retro cafe in Yeonnam-dong, a fashionable area in Seoul.
"Yongnam Panakkan" is a 40-year-old retro space with a large chandelier and a nostalgic atmosphere.
We recommend the menu using sesame seeds! You can't remove sesame seeds and sesame ice cream ♪
You can buy the special sesame seeds and sesame oil in the store, so it is recommended as a souvenir!

◆ Yongnam Panakkan (Ennan Flour Shop)
Address: 29 Gil 34, Donggyo Road, Mapo-gu, Seoul
OPEN: Weekdays 12:00 to 21:00, Saturdays and Sundays 12:00 to 22:00
