If you’re learning hiragana, give this Kyoto restaurant sign a look. It caught my eye because of the elegant, stylized script that might make this otherwise easy to read word a bit of a challenge, if not for the context of the photo.
You might also already be used to sight reading the word in its often seen kanji incarnation that I’ve written just below the photo.
These particular kanji are most often associated with this word and are seen in other forms much less frequently, so learning them as a set is common.
