We have robatayaki and houtou-nabe for lunch at Sanrokuen .山麓園(さんろくえん)

From Wikipedia:
In Japanese cuisinerobatayaki (炉端焼き?, literally "fireside-cooking"), often shortened to just robata (ろばた in hiragana), refers to a method of cooking, similar to barbecue, in which items of food on skewers are slow-grilled over hot charcoal

Hōtō (ほうとう?) is a popular regional dish originating from YamanashiJapan made by stewing flat udon noodles and vegetables inmiso soup. Though hōtō is commonly recognized as a variant of udon, locals do not consider it to be an udon dish because the dough is prepared in the style of dumplings rather than noodles.
