Restaurant "Nakau"

Nakau is a Japanese fast food restaurant chain which has become extremely popular recently, and there are many Nakau restaurants in Kyoto.

They specialize in gyudon (bowl of rice topped with beef), oyako donburi (bowl of rice topped with chicken and egg), and Japanese noodles. Not only the food is served fast, but it's cheap and tasty!

I've been back in my hometown Shimane and swallows are back to the nest in my parents house again this year! There are six babies and it's so fun to observe them grow every day. Having swallows (=bluebird) back in the house is the "symbol of happiness"!
