It was told that the electors are quite interested in (or concerned about) this, but finally, the voting late was the lowest ever.

“Natasho” is waiting for you in Takamatsu

You may arrive at “Natasho” passing through huge shopping arcade in the center of Takamatsu city,

..if you are lucky.


natashoThe view you have there is like this.


I’ve never encountered such a seducing “field”, where something serious and decadent, ancient weep of prostitutes and pop & cute are cozily vital at the same time.


The entrance looks like normal house, but you should be careful enough, to find a tiny “open” written on a piece of 3cm square paper, from which you will feel lack of owner’s will of making money. You guess it is a kind of shop since it’s witten as “open”, but you cannot find any other hints from outside; what is the name of the shop? What kind of service do they offer? No hints.

I was sort of upset at the entrance, but had enough curiosity to get in, fortunately.


“Taking off the shoes at the entrance”, you go up, or almost climb up the steep and narrow steps. Now you are at the 2nd floor and look back, then you find a lady playing with her Mac in the corner of the room. Say hello to her, then she will turn around in surprise.
