... on triangular blocks whilst having huge stone tablets placed on their thighs. Nice. Dinner was the local speciality of Hida beef which is highly marbled and cooked at your table.

We got it worked out so 3 sums matched the total of the bill, but the waiter wasn't convinced that he could manage one person paying cash and 2 using credit cards. I have no idea how long we would have been there if Yumi had not interceded on our behalf showing how the math worked out. As they say, all's well that ends well, and it was truly a unique ...
