Gangnam’s remarkable Shinsegae Department Store

I remember that in the old days in Japan it was Takashima-ya in Yokohama that was the greatest department store in the world. What an assortment of foods and objects one saw when one wandered through its display cases.

I recently had a chance to tour the Shinsegae Department Store in Gangnam, Seoul and I was impressed. The quality is as good as anything I have seen in Japan and in some ways the service even better. Here are a two pictures of the cakes and candies on display.
