As we left Kyoto we had to stop at Hotel Granvia to use a special coupon Minako received for buying the bullet train tickets to Kyoto. The Hotel Granvia is a beautiful hotel right in the Kyoto train station, a place I would like to stay at on our next trip to Japan. Turns out the coupon was for a special bento lunch.
As you can see, the bento box was lovely, with a section of chicken sukiyaki using the local chicken, a crispy fried shrimp and a scallop with tartar sauce, greens with a nice vinaigrette, a piece of grilled fish with miso sauce on a shiso leaf, pieces of chicken, picked cucumber, umeboshi (sour plum), and very fresh fruit.
Thanks Minako!
