    "A restaurant and ""drive-in"" rest area situated along the Tokura Pass in Shiso City, Hyogo Prefecture. 1,510 meter high Mt. Hyonosen, standing on the border between Hyogo Prefecture and Tottori Prefecture, generates rivers of snowmelt which continue to flow even in the middle of summer; this nagashi-somen noodle slide restaurant makes use of the mountain's snowmelt to power 30 meter long noodle slides spanning a river with char swimming in it. The restaurant serves Ibonoito somen noodles, a Nishiharima specialty product; along with a dipping sauce made with genuine Tatsuno soy sauce. Only open during the summer, diners can enjoy their meal while taking in the pass's charming beauty. Be aware that during the peak of the season, lines can form (the restaurant does not accept reservations)."

    "An okonomiyaki savory pancake restaurant located in a bustling street in Sannomiya.
