It seems to call “Ujigami-sama”.
The shop name of “Yasudaya” in the back and the lattice window are also nice.

Although the name is “Parry”, the menu is “bowl”, “Western food”, “Chinese food” and like a mass eatery.

I decided to eat chicken rice.
On the plate (hidden in association) “Parry” logo is stamped, it is fashionable.

There was a chair for the cat beside the stove.
I Recommend for those who feel crushing in the word “Showa Retro”.
※ Because there was not “Chichibu specialty gourmet”, we do not recommend to those who want to eat “local cuisine”
