We went to our first meal in Sasebo. We sat in a spacious booth that the waitress tried to tell us we wouldn't like because it didn't have air conditioning. Did she really think we were going to pass up the opportunity to sit on the floor next to the squid tank? I don't think so. We dealt with it. Plus, you couldn't even tell there was no AC! Considering the humidity melts your face off outside.
The food was great.
