Keep your eyes open as it is easy to miss!

Vegan gastronmy seems to have acquired its letters in Shizuoka City as one more establishment opened last week in Takajo, Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City!
That makes no less than four of them now (one closed due to the pregnancy of its owner!)!
It is difficult to miss, so follow the indications carefully: go up Kitakado Street till Mizuochi Intersection (you will see a police box on the left-hand side). Turn right. You will find their sign on the right hand-side. If you haven’t found it before the first street on the left walk back!
