Lunch Break!

Nikko is famous for "yuba". For those who don't know, yuba is a tofu product. It is produced by slowly heating a tub of incredibly fresh, super-high-quality soy milk until just the topmost layer develops a thin skin. The skin is then peeled off and eaten.

Here is a picture of my yuba lunch - it was delicious! Moving clockwise from the upper-right:
