Utsunomiya is not a big city, and the downtown is getting deserted compared with the suburb. But it's easy to walk in the downtown, and it must be fun to walk around with this passport.
Yuki and I were so interested in this book.
So of course we tried to use them on Saturday.
I really understood we are one of those ordinary people, because many people were waiting in line to use this book. The restaurant we went to was a famous Chinese restaurant. We were really surprised that this restaurant was introduced in the book. I asked the owner why this restaurant was on the list. The owner said "we help to make Utsunomiya an active town and attract people to downtown". Actually because of this book we went out of our way to have lunch like other people.
The restaurant was not well-known so not many people were there. But the restaurant was more crowded than usual. The owner said "thanks to this book, our restaurant became better known by people."
We usually don't go downtown, but these days we see many people walking with this book. This book can be used until the end of June. For a while we must to try enjoy walking downtown with this book.
