We returned from a long morning of sight seeing. All the restaurants we passed on the way back to our hotel from the station were closed.
Then we came upon Ogawa. It was just before 2PM (14:00) and they were just about to close.
The lovely proprietress, who was putting out the “closed” sign, invited us in for lunch. We had the place to ourselves, but we could hear the staff eating lunch somewhere in the area near the back kitchen. We weren’t sure if the woman who welcomed us and the man who did the cooking were a family but it seemed possible. They enjoyed talking with us, though we don’t speak Japanese and they had very little English.
There was no English menu so we took the proprietress outdoors and pointed to something in the plastic food display. We thought to have tuna steaks but we had had them for dinner the day before and were planning on that again tonight, so we selected shrimp tempura with vegetables. It was excellent.
The place is smallish with counter seating, 4 low table seating areas where we sat, and one banquet room.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and the food and recommend this restaurant highly.
