Right in front of Shimoura Elementary School, there is an old-fashioned small store. It is called "Kawamura," and my mother used to take me there to shop when I was a child.
Self-serve restaurant Kawamura
At that time of the day I visited, it was still before opening time, so I could not enter the restaurant, but just by looking at the exterior of the restaurant and the parking lot, I was able to immerse myself in a very nostalgic feeling.
Shall I share my memories of this "Kawamura"?
There were gacha-gacha and carddas, and I remember being charged quite a bit for them. I can't tell you how many times I played Dragon Ball and Gundam carddas.
I think it was a type of five cards for 100 yen. It was rare to find prismatic sparkling cards, and when I did, I was really happy. So, even now, when I see a prismatic sparkling card, I feel excited.
For a moment, I thought to myself, "Was this the place where I won a rock-paper-scissors-paper game and got a card for either Garospe or Stotu?" But it was not. It was a different store called "My Shop," located in Hachihonmatsu at the edge of Kamojima Town.
Let's get back to the other restaurant because we've gone too far off topic.
I don't know how many times I played with the gacha-gacha. There were a lot of "spy goods," "superalloy-like assembled weapons," "Tamagotchis," and so on. Most of the time I got nothing, and then a watermelon eraser or a panda eraser would come out.
