When I arrived in Oimachi, I found it to be a big city with large buildings surrounding the large rotary in front of the station. It seemed to be a different town from the Oimachi I had stored away in my mind. Still, I was relieved to see that there were still narrow alleys when I went off the beaten path from the ubiquitous and uninteresting station. For people who like to walk in alleys, it is tempting to think that the narrow alleys that cars cannot pass through are the true face of Oimachi, and that the well-developed front of the station is a camouflage of some kind.

I was not the only one who was attracted to the alleys near the station, and many people were walking through them. There are popular restaurants here, and gourmet food lovers are drawn to the area. Of course, this was an alley with no sunshine. It was not a fancy restaurant, but a B-grade gourmet store.

As I walked down the alley, I saw a large sign. The sign was so big that I thought it would block the narrow alley, and it was so big that it would be visible to anyone walking by. The sign, which only said "cheap and good," gave off the smell of B-grade gourmet food. I didn't know what the restaurant served, but it looked like a place where I could find something delicious.
