Stand-up Eating

Tachi-gui literally means stand-up eating.

There is also stand-up drinking.

People make use of stand-up eating when they don't afford to take time for eating.

Some stand-up restaurants offer stools during off-hours.

Stand-up Eating

You can see such ones in a station or on a station platform. 

They serve udon or soba noodles promptly because both are easy to cook.

You cannot expect polite hospitality of them because swiftness is the most important.

Buy a food ticket by the ticket machine in front of or near the entrance.  You will be able to eat what you've ordered in one or two minutes.

Stand-up Eating

The fast food shop had already existed in the Edo period 400 years ago.

A dish cooked elaborately and artistically by a leading chef is wasyoku, and so is a stand-up food.

Wasyoku has been designated as the world cultural heritage.

Welcome to my homepage.
For me, meeting with people is a gift from God.
A new encounter inspires me and enriches my heart.
People sometimes ask me unexpected questions I can't answer on the spot.
New encounters are, in a sense, a kind of continuation of embarrassment and bewilderment.
As a tour guide, going around with people is like an adventurous journey.
Those who I met stay in my heart with good memories.But I also would like to stay in your heart.
Yes, every encounter, solo or group, is a glow of jewels.
I taught at senior high school. Good teachers are not always a good scholar, one time a comedian, another time a hero, like a spiderman.
I'm an expert in history, culture, and religion.
Why is Japan so mysterious?
My tour is full of smile, humor, laughter, and lectures.
I'm also a lover of music and a chi exercise instructor.
Why don't you try chi exercise with me? read more
