Ryokan, Part II: Breakfast is Served

Leave a comment

In addition to an amazing dinner, my stay at Sakoya also included breakfast. Again, I was overwhelmed by the amount of food and the artfulness of the presentation. Since it was very healthy, it was OK that I devoured almost all of it, right? I’ll keep this post short and sweet and let the photos do the talking. All I want to add is that there was a huge tub of rice and a bowl of miso soup, not pictured. Oh, and that I ate breakfast outside on their patio, with a view of the mountains. Nice!

A hot pot to start your day off right: tofu, napa cabbage, mushrooms.

More tofu (2 kinds), with seaweed and snow peas.

Pickled plums and some UPTs (unidentified pickled things).

The most delicious part: grilled fish, seaweed, and egg. OJ to the right.

A salad as only the Japanese would make: ham, tomato, cucumber, cabbage, and pineapple.
