You Can Buy On Only Days Of Setsubun Festival! 'Specialty Daruma Yaki' With A Joyous Brand Of Daruma

Sold at the precinct, Daruma-yaki is a kind of rare because it can be seen only on 2/2 and 3. It's even good after it gets cold because of much egg, and very popular enough for people to make a line to buy. Enjoy it together with Setsubun Festival!
