Shibazaki ♥ ♥


We got hungry on our way up to Kiyomizudera and stopped for lunch at the first restaurant we spotted.

Shibazaki is prized for its soba, house made tofu and unagi

The restaurant was busy on a Tuesday lunch

They take their tofu very seriously here

Tofu and water and nothing else

Place a soft and silky piece gently into your bowl and top with condiments.
Well, what can I say... tofu IS tofu.

Unagi Soba Set. The grilled eel was nothing to write home about.



After eating, it's nice to check out other parts of the restaurant.

On the second floor is a mini museum displaying the owner's collection of laquerware




 It is said that Shibazaki's collection is even more extensive than those of Tokyo and Kyoto
National Museums'




 I am liking this black dresser set




The urinal at the men's room is pretty neat, too! Lol! :P
