On August 1, we have started the renovation of the Minowa facility. First works include removal of the old wallpaper as well as breaking down part of a dividing wall at the second floor that is designated to be the bar/lounge area.
We also spend some time depicting how the bar and kitchen area would look like.
Next is building the additional walls, doors toilets and shower units.
We are currently gathering the kitchen equipment and bar and lounge furniture.
Only in Japan, you can order tiles for the kitchen wall, with the grout and the spacers, but the company you order that from does not supply the glue nor can advise on what glue to use and where to get it ... some of the problems we run into ....
Our menu is carefully put together by our expert chef and aiming at accomodating either weightloss or muscle building diets
