Ninja Visits: Seoul’s Otaku Spot
The first things that came to my mind about Seoul are MMORPG and StarCraft. But many who have been to Seoul know that other than a few occasional ads, you will be flooded by KPOP & Korean fashion instead. Still, you’ll be able to fulfil your gaming needs if you travel out of the trendy area, into the Kukje Electronics Centre. Bear in mind that it’s not as large as you think it’d be, for a nation known for e-gaming.
Where? 9th floor of Kukje Electronics Centre
How to get there? It’s right outside Exit 3 of the Namba Bus Terminal Station
What’s there? Games, lots of Gundam goods & a few general anime character goods
How long will I need? Less than an hour, unless you are a Gundam fan
One level after another, I’ve finally reached the 9th floor. I was first greeted by a crowded game stall with the PlayStation 4 launch. But other than that, it was really quiet. The floor consist of individual stalls selling games or character models. Sadly, about half of the stalls were closed even though I visited on the weekend. The remaining ones are mostly selling games or Gundam models. Still, I was able to find a stall selling anime goods, and they do have figurines from popular series that may already be hard to locate in Japan. They are very reasonably priced too. So I bought myself a Mikasa Ackerman figma.
As for games, the selection is pretty good and they do have Japan imports, although these are usually quite highly priced. Language will be a barrier, so there isn’t much reason to visit for games.
However, if you are a Gundam fan, it’s worthwhile to pay a visit. There are stalls filled with Gundam model kits, so much so that they have to put some on the floor! They also sell the tools you may need, and have a good selection of paints as well.
