They are cooked on a hot grill and stay that way as you eat them because the table also has a hotplate!!
From lunch it was a short walk to check out the Kofuku-ji temple which includes an impressive five-storey pagoda dating from 1426.
After this, some window shopping in the Naramachi district, then back to the station for the return trip to Kyoto.
After that a little window shopping then time for dinner.
