Wonderful lunch

I highly recommend to enjoy lunch in this restaurant if you are in Toyama, no tourists, very good quality vegan food, peaceful, wooden house and then a beautiful site to enjoy and walk around   pickles, tofu, noodles, rice and bamboo shoots, excellent vegetable tempura, it was plenty and delicious    

Lobata in Kobe

Lobata is a grill where you sit around and the chef cooks for you and serves direct from the grill to you it is usually great fresh food, mainly vegetables and fish/seafood, at a good price and a friendly casual atmosphere, good value for money but be prepared to stink!!

Okonomiyaki – Hiroshimayaki

Osaka prides itself for the okonomiyaki, Hiroshima as well, I prefer the Hiroshima version, not sure why as it is equally fat, greasy and unhealthy!! but it is fun I like to go to Goemon, fun place, not touristic, small, lively, fun try it!
