Eating in Nikko

Nikko is a very small town (and really quiet in the winter) and there's one main street full of restaurants to choose from. You should avoid the tourist restaurants agglomerated around Nikko's train and bus stations and chances are you will eat pretty well. The most popular recipe is yuba-ryori, it consists in tasty strips of tofu made from soya beans, it is really good, if you want to eat it; the Suzuya restaurant offers this special dish.
