My wife and I were heading back into Tokyo from up north over the weekend.  She wanted to stop at a "famous" rest area that has a little Edo style set of restaurants.  It was dark and rainy when we arrived, but sure enough there was a lovely little set of restaurants (a food court basically) all couched in a nicely decorated Edo-period architecture.  All of the food available was Japanese but there was lots of variety available.

I went for a pork dish that turned out to be a pork intestines dish.  Luckily I don't have an issue with that and it was actually pretty good.  My wife saw the taiyaki okonomiyaki and got one of those plus a custard fish.  I also grabbed some yummy looking Japanese desserts.  We both enjoyed the food well enough, but it wasn't amazing or anything.  Pretty darn good for rest area food, that's for sure!
