Ever wonder where those all those Asian kids back in elementary school always got their cute miniature figures, highly elaborate notebooks and all those little accessories with amusing gimmicks? Oktopbang is probably a great example of shops that offer a wide variety of fun, decorative and useful accessories. Their selection includes light stands, kitchen tools that you don’t see in department stores, mini safes, hanging plants, notebooks with covers pocking fun at North Korean propaganda, graphic posters and donut-shaped cushions. You will surely be able to spend a good hour just looking around at all the crazy little things that lure your curiosity, attention and desire. On special occasions like Halloween and Christmas, it will be a great place to stop by for some party decorations while the garden (decorated according to the festivity) will provide you with ample ideas. Because it is located on a hilltop, its garden also offers an exclusive view of Seoul. The downstairs also includes a café.
