I Go to a Noodle Soup Shop 'Ogino'

Restaurant 'Ogino' which serves noodle soup and sweets has firmly kept its own old Japanese Showa-era styple.

They show dish samples made of wax in front of the shop and hang a big size menu display on its wall.

All the more, they offer unchanged same old taste of noodle soup for over half a century.

My wife and I went to Mashiko town to have lunch at a local restaurant 'kabocha-an' the other day. On the same day, we visited a pottery museum.

After seeing artworks at the museum, we found an old small Japanese house next to the museum. The house was open to everyone to see hina dolls displayed to cerebrate Hinamatsuri festival.

The local restaurant 'kabocha-an' was famous for serving dishes used pumpkins as food ingredients.
