This was the 1st broadcast of Shawa Gohan.

Sawako was wearing a light blue one piece and a white cardigan, buttoned at the top. Her hair was up in the back, and there were strands of slight curls on the sides. It looked pretty fancy.

Sawako talked a little bit about the previous broadcast, where they decided the title of this program.

This was a program where Sawako rolls a die and goes around the Yamanote Line (clockwise), and goes to a restaurant at the station that was chosen. The first station was Shinjuku.

At first, Sawako read mails from the viewers. There were various suggestions for the restaurant.

Sawako said she likes tacos. She went to Okinawa for work before, and the soft shell tacos she ate was unforgettable. She wants to go to Okinawa again to eat it.

After around 10 minutes, they switched to a video of Sawako in Yoyogi. She walked along the JR tracks from Yoyogi to Shinjuku. It seemed to be early evening.

It was very cloudy, with a little bit of light rain. Sawako doesn't like sunny days that much, so she likes cloudy days. She was also scared of high places, so she was a little scared of the walkway overlooking the train tracks near Takashimaya.

The restaurant that Sawako went to was Aging Beef Tokyo. It was half a steak house and half a yakiniku store. Sawako chose to go to the yakiniku side, and sat down at a counter.

Sawako looked at the menu, but there were too many kinds of meat, so she asked the waiter for a recommendation.

All of the store's meat was dry aged for 40 days, and one can eat all parts of the cow. Sawako ordered the moriawase, which had meat from all parts of the cow.

When Sawako got the meats, the waiter cooked the first piece. Sawako ate it with salt and wasabi. She was very surprised by the taste and texture of the aged beef. It was something she never experienced before.

Next Sawako cooked the beef by herself.

At around 30 minutes, they switched back to the studio. Sawako rolled the die and got a 4.

So the next stop was Ikebukuro, and the broadcast will be 8/12. Sawako said she wants to eat seafood.

The members only video was around 20 minutes.
This video was just a continuation of the restaurant video.

Sawako looked at the menu again, and ordered some more.

Sawako said she likes beef tongue. She wanted to try both the aged and non-aged beef tongue, and compare them. She said the flavor and after taste was very different.

This was the first time that Sawako ate aged beef, and she said she was happy that she didn't go through life not knowing the taste of aged beef.
