UMAMI MART MATSURI FESTIVAL
Over the weekend, I spent some time in Nikko which is about three hours away from Tokyo. Most people go for the gaudy shrines - wooden and painted in bright red and gold reflecting Shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu's glory. Anyhow, the weather wasn't very agreeable - so there was nothing else to do except...EAT!

Turns out, this place is famous for yuba or tofu skin. No complaints here as this is one of my favorite foods - and within the top 5 things I miss the most when in the States.

Pictured top right Yuba soba - buckwheat noodles with two types of yuba - in a roll and in flat layers. Absolutely delicious as the noodles were also handmade at this shop. 700yen (about $6)!

Pictured below Yuba shabu shabu - yuba hot pot. Throw in yuba and veggies into a clay pot full of soy milk - absolutely wonderful. 2,500yen (about $20+).
