Here's a delicious surprise I discovered at the Daimon Sake Brewery: Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday they run a restaurant at their beautiful 180-year-old kura. The food was terrific, the highlight for me (naturally) a hot pot featuring asari clams and squid-and-shrimp dumplings. The brewery's 30 minutes by train from Kyoto or Osaka.
