  • In between apartments on the left side of the street from exit 3, shirogane Takanawa station head in Ebisu Torii respectable stands and up the stairs. It is okay to go from the side by car directly in front of the stairs in the resistance. In Pats have a cat in front of the main building, and was healed. And the cat seemed to charm the cat.
