Next it was time for dinner. Before we had left the hotel I asked for a recommendation on a place to try okonomiyaki, or Japanese pizza. The recommended a place called Tanto and set up reservations for us. She also printed out a map of the area and the name in English and Kanji characters (useful if we had to ask for help finding the place). The place was in the Gion district right on the channel that runs through it. The whole place is very picturesque. We entered and were told to take off our shoes and place them in a locker. Pulling out a wood block locked the locker - very cool (but I suppose not very secure). We were led into a room and given seats at a bar like area that was sunken into the floor. Our orders were taken and a little while later our okonomiyaki arrived. I ordered a Kim Chee pork one and M ordered a cheese and rice one. Osaka style okonomiyaki consists of a very flat pancake base covered in napa cabbage and a number of other ingredients including a savory sauce and pickled ginger. Both of ours were delicious. As we left the owner gave us handkerchiefs with a cardboard cutout of a geiko. I'm not sure if everyone gets this or if it was because we are foreigners or because the Hyatt called in the reservation for us, but the gesture was appreciated.
