Respond to Review of Ryoanji Yudofu - Seigenin
Review: Pardon the pun. Went here with my ex who spoke fluent Japanese, so no communication issues. We sat cross-legged in a small room across from a trio of elderly Japanese women. That was memorable, but it might be less sociable if one's Japanese is poor or one doesn't have a fluent friend. The food was medium to high-end Shojin ryori: delicate, subtle and some of the prettiest veg food in the world (http://img2.travelblog.org/Photos/14674/73982/t/463669-Shojin-ryori-0.jpg). I remember there was a delicious tofu pouch (not inari, but an actual bag) with mochi inside. I could have eat that all day. Since Buddhists were the earliest to refine mock meats, this is a place to go to taste a piece of veggie history. Shanti.
