A traditional Japanese home-made cuisines are provided by Daigin Shokudo where is located right across the Tetsugaku no Michi (Philosopher’s Walk).

In addition, you can't miss a variety of well –prepared side dishes. Meal sets come along with large sized rice, miso soup and healthy 2 side dishes. 3D samples of their meals are displayed and must catch your sight as you open the door.
