      ... Each of the tables has a steaming hot plate in the middle, and a set of walpaper scrapers on small plates arranged around the perimeter. The cafe serves Okonomyaki, which is a kind of cross between pancakes and bubble and squeak, filled with either beef, chicken pork or squid. The double pancake of your choice is folded in to one uber-pancake carried over and dumped by the waitress on your hotplate, then smothered in a BBQ type sauce, bonito flakes and ...

      ... and then around the bend, you are faced with 1,000 statues of Kannon...500 on one side and 500 on the other side of a giant statue of Kannon.

      ... through lots of narrow back streets. We passed many restaurants and tea houses. Our tour leader told us that if the establishment does not have a menu outside clients enter by invitation only. We saw many like that. They are all very expensive.
