In episode 4, we meet Tae the owner of Akabeko. Which city is she from, and how can you tell?
She's from Kyoto - while honma (local version of honto ni, or "really?") is used more heavily in Osaka, it is common in the Kansai region. However, okinii ("thank-you") and oideyasu ("come in!") are used almost exclusively in Kyoto.
