A Warm Welcome Awaits

This lantern signals the entrance to Hayashi Ya (林屋), a local eatery two minutes from Otsu station.

FUJIFILM X100S 1/40 second F/2.0 ISO 1000 33 mm

It offers a surprisingly varied menu for its small size, the food is good, it's always bustling with local residents and workers and is a welcome haven on rainy nights such as this.

Photographed here on my trusty Fuji x100s with the teleconverter attached, giving a 50mm equivalent field of view.
