... samurai warrior" hat and taking pictures with us. The food was delicious and we had soup along with another Japanese specialty -- yakitori which is grilled stuff on a skewer. We had chicken and it was yummy.

As evening fell on Nikko we learned there isn't a whole lot to do there. Everything seemed to close up by 6pm which presented some difficulties as we were dying for some coffee. We finally found a place open which served delicious coffee, but ...
