In and around: Tokyo's Koreatown (Shin-Okubo)

I still haven't gotten used to the fact that the Korean restaurants here charge you for your kimchi and side dishes... But if any of you happen to be in Tokyo and want a little taste of Korea, Shin-Okubo's (JR East line, one stop from Shinjuku) one of the places to go!

how long are you in Japan for?

Im pretty jealous.

I just changed jobs so Im permanently back in the US :(.
No more freebie trips to Korea :(

Although Im working on a major project where a bunch of our equipment is being built in Korea. One of our project guys is going over in a couple of months...I just can't seem to come up with a good excuse to need to go :(

I've been taking Korean lessons, and Ive racked up some vacation time. I thinking of trying to attend one of the 3 or 5 week full immersion language courses at one of the universities in Seoul....I hope I'll be able to work that out!
