Ever dine atop a waterfall? Ever have noodles delivered to you a la water flume ride via a contraption of bamboo pipes. You can do both at this spot, located 30 minutes outside Kyoto. The restaurant is a hybrid of two “only in Japan” dining genres: Kawadoko, which means “place at the river”, and allows diners to eat on platforms built over rushing cool streams of water often at the edge of a waterfall. The second genre is somen-nagashi, where thin white wheat flour noodles are “flushed” down waterslide-esque tubes towards diners who await their splashy arrival with open chopsticks and bowls of mentsuyu sauce and garnishes for dipping. Each diner gets his own noodle tube, so germaphboes can relax.
