There is a possibility that the inspection is not sufficiently performed or the report is delayed. , We need to be careful in the future. "

If you enjoy eating and drinking, it is important to have a small number of people with your family and usual friends, and to have a short time in a well-ventilated store that has been certified by a third party.
