The inside of the restaurant was jolly with many guests.
All seats were occupied, so we wrote our family name on the following sheet.
We waited at the following room. The Japanese room was very relaxing.

We felt very warm and comfortable thanks to this appliance. It was cold outside in December.

I ordered the following Kurobuta Shabukatsu Set（1,000 yen）.
The price is very reasonable.
The color of the soba noodle is white. It means that the restaurant uses only the essential parts of soba beans.
