Private Onsen in Ryokan
This morning we headed back to Nagoya for one night before flew back home. As usual, our morning we started with delicious onigiri from convenient store inside Takayama train station. There is a waiting room completed with heated room. Until the train carriage had arrived, then we went search for our seats.

What to not be missed in Nagoya? Of course, The eel rice bowl. They produce one of the best eel dishes here in Nagoya. They are very fresh and delicious. It comes in a few different version. Eel rice don which is rice bowl topped with glazed eel. And there is the eel set that come with tea and condiments. Remember the 4 steps of eating it!!! First you divide your eel rice into 4 portions. Then scoop it one spoon onto the bowl and taste it that way. Second, another scoop onto the bowl topped with condiments and enjoy it that way. Third, scoop out another spoon, this time pour the tea combined with condiments as well. Fourth, which combination tastes the best then have it that way. Otherwise, skip all the steps if you knew what you like already.
Initially, we were looking for Maruya Restaurant, but instead we saw this restaurant in the Nagoya station and there were quite lots of queue so it must be good. The queue moved pretty quick though and in no time we got the seats and our food as well. They tasted absolutely delicious.

A nice dessert followed, still at Nagoya station. The station is pretty huge and so many many restaurants here. We went for one of the cafe named Cafe Gentiane. We had this hot matcha green tea drink. The color looked a little too pale but taste good. We also tried a few types of cakes and they were good too. The cakes and drinks price range around 500-700¥
Stay tuned for the next blog still in Japan:
