"Irasshaimase! Will you be trying the *best* noodles in Toshi Ranbo today?"


Midori runs Hayai Kame with her husband, Shuzo. She is properly humble about everything except her cooking, and she proudly boasts that you will find no better noodles elsewhere in the city. Her pride is not without merit.

 She is obviously pregnant, although she still bustles about the shop and rarely lets her husband make her sit and relax.
