緊急事態宣言中だと言うのに、駐車場は危ない地域のナンバーばかり。
店の前には、緊急事態地域お断りは貼っているが、電話予約は危険地域からどんどん入れて入るみたいで、地元も怒っているらしいです。
店員も、今は全然思いやりが無い対応だし。昔の店の時は全てで良かったのに、今は流行りすぎて天狗になってしまったのかな。残念です。

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture's treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains' Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
