    The Tokonatsu Museum

That means, as you’re sitting, enjoying an ice-cold cider, you’re likely to be swatting the air around you, or running for cover (depending on your preference). Well, we’re here with some tips on how to survive the onslaught, and have a more enjoyable Tokonatsu! 1. Drink from covered cups with straws: It’s no secret that wasps are attracted to sweet smelling substances. The…
