Cafe Choryang 1941 is old Japanese style house. And This house cafe built in 1941. These days Cafe Choryang is hot place amongst Instagram photographers and bloggers.
The Choryang 1941 is reminiscent of Japanese houses. Because Korea used to be under the occupation of Japanese imperialism. Therefore, we can still see the traces of Japan in some buildings in Korea today. But still this cafe is a nice place where you can enjoy mountain view behind and city view in front. The Choryang 1941 became a cafe after the remaking of the Japanese house that normally existed. The cafe opened in 1 January 2017. After opened by a cafe people get interested and more than 200 people visit it daily. It has been 3 years since the cafe was opened, but people from other cities still come here because they are curious. We can say that it became a kind of touristic place.
Lets start to visit Cafe Choryang 1941. This is the entrance door. I have to tell you, I guess Japanese are short, because buildings, doors etc. very low.

I must also say that even the road to the toilet looked beautiful.
Every part of this cafe like a museum. If you like old items, this is the place for you! There is a lot of antique things.
I went to this cafe twice. Because I love the view here. I went once in winter and once in summer. I think the mood is different in both seasons. I liked going to the cafe more in summer.
