Nikko lunch

For lunch in Nikko we decided to go local and ducked into a restaurant serving yuba, also known as tofu skin. It is made from soybeans and ends up looking like very fine muslin when it's hung out to dry! It is then cut into strips and rolled up to resemble a bandage!
Sounds yummy, no?! Actually, it was and I'm really glad we tried it. We were served about 7 different dishes in quick succession and each one was a variant on the yuba, with a bit of dry, salted fish thrown in for good measure - I couldn't touch that one, I'm afraid...
