Foreign substances are often mixed in the food at the exciting market next door. To say the dirty thing, there was a fly in the katsudon. There are some aspects that cannot be evaluated very much.

It was opened in the corona whirlpool. The poster of the recent paper balloon festival was exhibited. If possible, if there is an exhibition where you can watch videos, you can enjoy the festival.

Paper Balloon House
It's huge to call it a paper balloon.
Is it around February 10th?
It seems to climb with the power of fire when it is cold. It's a balloon.
There seems to be a toilet at night.
I will be indebted to you someday.

The cafeteria started in April, and I recently ate edible wild plants. I ate rice balls and udon before they came.
