Sumodori is this shop's unique name combined with Sumo(Japanese wrestling) and Tori(bird).
Somewhat, the owner must be a fan of Sumo wrestling.
They even say Beaujolais Nouveau has arrived.

This place locates near Kasugabaru railway station, Fukuoka, where is my home town.

I had favourite tamago-don of soba noodle restaurant in my high school years.

Perhaps, I remebered that tamago-don, somewhat

The first phase of South side of Tachikawa station redevelopment commpleted on 1999 by opening station building called GRANDUO.
Around 1988, I was a student of small English language school locating south side of Tachikawa station.
Those days, there were still small restaurants and pachinko shop near the station, compared to the north side. At the north side, there were already large building of banks and department sotres. There are relocated now.
