We found Kasugacho back alley walk ... ♪ "My best" ...

Hometown, I (writer N) who came back to Nerima who spent about 20 years approximately one and a half years ago.
When we come to think that it is, "we came back to Nerima with much effort, and there should be favorite spot where one depuratto can come close to and shop which we want to recommend to friend in hometown" and find time, we take a walk here and there.

We take a walk aimlessly this time around around Nerima-Kasugacho Station of Oedo Line and Heiwadai Station of Yurakucho Line ♪ We discover that some Circular Route 8 en alley spots whether "there was shop so far in this place" when we go hating increase☆ 

It was me of timid person who could not readily set foot, but gave up in shop to be worried about saying it was saying "we will reclaim hometown newly!" in old shop saying "you can enter alone"!

*Place of shop written to upper handwriting map is just indication.

Thing, two seats of seats at a table that rose six seats of counters and small are in shop, and "there are many people using seat of small rise as for moms with small child."
As I was "one", we take seat on counter.

Selectable soup can choose by hunger condition including "multi-joy set" (tax-included 880 yen) (there are rice, bread, one of the drinks each) that one kind of "single set" (tax-included 680 yen) and soup become two kinds when we read menu promptly. That there are regular five kinds soup, and two kinds of those change by season.

Just advanced to the Heiwadai area for "soup multi-joy", and passed Seven-Eleven, and turned left at corner of second rank of rakugo storyteller, and advanced a little; it is "bakery fujita" that is on the right.

It will be approximately 30 years ago now that first father drops out of a company and began shop.
We are impressed by taste of German bread, and, other than pumpanikkeru using rye Sawa - kind, Campagne of use of natural yeast, cream bread and about 30 kinds of bread including bean-jam bun line up.

It seems to be focaccia of soft texture that put tarutinu and olive oil which marketable goods carry ingredients such as cheese or bacon on board on the baguette and baked in the dough. He/she slices bread and Campagne in favorite thickness. Around 10:00 to keep type of bread is aim eye!

Under the training of "stollen" to eat little by little by Christmas on day when we heard from coverage (1.300 yen including 650 yen including small size tax, large size tax). Wisteria smartweed is popular product every year, too.

In sons from manager, Yasuo Fujita of the second generation

We found "Italian food of organic vegetables" and signboard written when we walked residential area where we entered at way with pool of Nerima east Elementary School on way close to another Heiwadai Station.
"Wonderful shop which did not come to quiet residential area!" was attracted for to girl by interesting menu and reserved lunch course of "one" decisively☆ 

When, on the day of the reservation, stand some other time in front of shop, single house common visually. That was natural, too, and, in shop "Lito rukka" (ritorukka) of this, Matsuura of owner seemed to open corner of home as restaurant in 2017.

Selectable main chooses cabbage roll which surrounded cereals such as Deccan grass or foxtail millet in substitution for meat from four kinds (we add 500 yen to price of course).

As, as for the fond de veau sauce using texture of sticky cereals and material of the sum including white miso to secret ingredient, I do not think with animalism raw materials nonuse; is rich; and is satisfaction very much!

We are sometimes relaxed in big bathtub ☆ "yu - poppo" image

We extended a trip to the Heiwadai area when stomach was met. In going ahead through the Circular Route 8 a little more if we come to Heiwadai Station. We saw green signboard when we went straight on on way of with life. It is like public bath somehow here.

We are opened in 1954 at this place and are open with Isao Kobayashi and wife of master, son now. Pretty store's name called "yu - poppo" "thought that the name that seemed to have children get close was good" and seemed to touch.

Speaking of public bath, is there much use of elderly person? Thing, we thought of this, but "there are many one-room apartments in this neighborhood, and young woman comes a lot according to Kobayashi when it is at night."


After the coverage, we waited for 3:00 p.m. of business hours and had I mohito bath.
Clean washing space seems to clean every day after hours for about two hours (thank you for your work!)

When is immersed in spacious bathtub, open feeling unlike modular bath of house! It is slightly small, but there is outdoor bath, and, other than herb hot water such as lavender or rosemary, there seems to be every day in rotation on day when star is seen depending on weather☆
Temperature of hot water is slightly rather hot with 42-3 degrees Celsius, way back is body gapokkapoka, too♪

Saying "even 1-2 times come to public bath in month, and is saying is glad if have relax"; Kobayashi.
Is public bath to be able to enjoy in less than one coin good?♪


Photograph: Extensive lounge

There is wide lounge space beside reception desk and can order beer and cream soda (each 300 yen). Nice service to "cost price for regular customer looking forward to one cup of the bath up rather low"♪ 

In addition, it supports barrier-free in the hall without step at the time of remodeling of 1998. There is bath wheelchair, and bathing is possible if with person of person of assistance.

Delicious thing and wonderful experience were waiting there when we opened curious shop door in the middle of walk decisively!
When it is more interesting town, we realize Nerima.

Cold becomes gradually severe, and it becomes slightly troublesome to go out, how about going out to always enter way different a little, and to look for "wonderful shop" from now on? (do not forget cold protection measures on this occasion!)
