    そばが好きなので、韓国のそば料理が気になります。 江原道のそば粉を使った郷土料理が食べられるというので、旌善アリラン市場に行ってみたいです。 また、市場の中で伝統公園や旌善アリランを聞くことができるというのが魅力的だと思います。

  • Singi Market (United)

    I can enjoy it here completely. because This is a traditional market visited by domestic and foreign tourists of various ages. It is close to Incheon International Airport and the filming sites of popular K-dramas (Incheon Songdo Central Park and Jayu Park). Inside the market are a sculpture modeled after the Singi Coin (yeopjeon) and a museum of Incheon’s SK Wyverns baseball team. Over the years, the market has grown into a traditional market representing Incheon with a variety of eateries and events.
