This place has a lovely traditional Japanese house and an equally lovely garden. In the aftermath of the tsunami, many neighbours and members of the community came here to rest and find solace in the quiet and cool garden. This garden is a labour of love and grew out of a hobby. Someone I knew arranged for us to help out in the garden and we were quite priviledged to have a lovely lunch here.
The cold udon were from the convenience store but it tasted really good. The yoghurt is homemade as was the jam. The mint were freshly plucked from the garden. The rice balls shaped into triangles or onigiri were also from the convenience store.

Cold udon that was packed with such precision it was impressive. It certainly impressed me. There was a separate compartment for the packet sauce and garnishing. Each portion came with half an egg. Japanese precision, technology and considerateness even in their food packaging have always amazed me.
