Travel to South Korean 6: Persons whom we met Latter part

In Seoul

In Seoul


a ticket gate of a subway

This time, the ticket of the subway that I used was recycle-type coin.

When I was passing through the ticket gate, an error occurred, and my bar didn’t open.

The station employee was not visible around me and I was in trouble.

Just then a young man who left the ticket gate stopped a foot and explained to a station employee with an inter-phone and my bar was opened.

Briefing about how to use the coin in Japanese, he left in a hurry.

At the beginning of office hours, I have troubled him.

I performed most of the orders by a gesture in a fish shope and a dining room.

The words of “Sashimi” and “Barbecue” were known.

In spite of being bluntness, the fishmonger handled effectually it.

The person of the dining room attended to me by a fake smile, in spite of feeling embarrassment.







a big bookstore

When I was paying at cash register of the bookstore, there was a person to talk to in fluent Japanese from behind.

He said, “Now, I have Japanese and the English class in Seoul, and often go to Japan.

And I worked as a Japanese employee once in Wall Street”.

He played a smile from first to last.

When I was going to return to a hotel in a hurry, an old man spoke to me.

“ ilbon ?”

I answered immediately in “Japan” and I escaped bluntly.

The old man seemed to be regretful for an instant.

After a bit, I realized “ ilbon ?” was “ Japan?” and I regretted it.








During a trip, we often were helped, and people seemed to be friendly.

In Korea, I realized that there were many people who had a sense of closeness toward Japan, learned Japanese, and were concerned with Japan.





We participated in the homemade booth of the Korean goods in Yingcheng Airport.

Finally, I introduce a remark of a Japanese who was together on my tour.

He has consulted for Korean company for about 30 years and has come to Korea for his work frequently.

I asked, “Does the South Korean person really have ill feeling to Japan?”

Then, he answered.

“People had ill feeling about 30 years ago. However, everybody is busy with money-making, and this is no time for that now.”
