Last night we booked dinner at a place that does hot pot type things. We booked for a Shabu Shabu pork hot pot. We got there at 730pm (our booking time) and there were quite a few other people there too. We got served our food and started eating, after about 15 minutes in, everyone else in the restaurant was gone. Leaving us to eat all on our own whilst the owners cleared up the other tables. There was no music in there either, so it was a little weird. But the food was great and the owners were lovely. An oldish Japanese couple that we managed to practice our Japanese with. And they gave us local apples. Nozawa is big on apples.
