Japanese Monkey in wig, mask,...
Oh yeah, the menu… ignore the fancy menu posted on the wall. The one with stuff like boar, deer and duck. There's none of that, that menu is just for show. Today's choices were: teppanyaki with chicken and tofu with meat. Plus the usual sides of kimchi, gyoza and tempura (which consisted mostly of onions).
And thank goodness, because that was enough to creep me out. The monkey did her schtick of delivering hot towels for about 30 minutes and then disappeared behind the bar.

Still, it's a creepy place, definitely not my favorite. I much prefer this - aaaahhhh, now THIS is paradise!(Click on the link ONLY if you love cats!)
Do you want a hot towel?
But when we finally managed to place our order (teppanyaki x2 and oolong tea x2), the food arrived relatively quickly. Mamma-san's helper for some very strange reason insisted on explaining the menu to us in English. Even though Dr. Trouble was answering her in perfect Japanese.
We were bored today and thought that seeing a couple of monkeys in goofy costumes would be a swell idea. No, we didn't go to a cosplay event, we went to Kayabuki. Kayabuki is a restaurant (actually, an izakaya, to be precise) in the Miyukihoncho part of Utsunomiya (address: 4688-13 Miyukihoncho, parking available) where two monkeys work as waiters (or waitresses - sorry I didn't feel like pulling down underpants). Their names are Yacchan (presumably a boy) and Fukuchan (presumably a girl, though I'm not sure).
