In brief: Be prepared to spend at least $20 for lunch, but also be prepared to be completely satiated on delicious, generously adorned, lunch sets.
03-11 Ootoya

A little on the pricy side for lunch, but to be fair, the serenity of Ootoya and the huge lunch tray is kind of worth it. It's not just the lunch specials that come in tray format, most of the options are teishoku, or meal sets, which means along with a hearty bowl of rice, chicken and egg, you are also presented with a small bowl of miso soup, a little dish of pickled things and an egg custard (chawanmushi). Afterward a hot cup of hoji (tea) and you are sent on your way.
