This machine at the entrance counter. Hotel related people immediately notice that it is a telephone switchboard to guest rooms! I think this is not worked now. This is such a historical machine!

Finally, the cuisine time. We had Lunch at the time. This is Chawan-mushi (a custard-like dish containing shrimp, chicken, mushrooms, vegetables, etc., steamed in a cup). Its texture was soft and tasty.

This is “FUKUSUKE DONBURI” (broiled eel rice bowl). The rice is steeped in the eel sauce. The taste was elegant.
