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!
