Lunch and Beer in Shin-Kobe Station

We are experiencing historically hot summer in Japan. The incredible heat makes me stay away from going outside.

I got an e-mail yesterday morning --- "I have two hours to kill at the Shin-Kobe station. How about beer?"

No matter how hot it is outside, I welcome this kind of invitation!

Salted green soybeans are the best "otsumami (snack)" for beer.

Among several restaurants in Shin-Kobe station, we chose Japanese restaurant and ordered this lunch box: tempura, salad, sashimi, noodle, white rice, inari sushi (stuffed sushi), Japanese egg omlette called "dashimaki tamago," baked egg-plants, and pickles (1800 yen).

It is a 30 minute ride in Shinkansen Bullet train to Shin-Kobe station from Kyoto Station.
