There was something neat that we found in Kanazawa...utsuwa chazuke.
Utsuwa means bowl/dish and chazuke is cooked rice with green tea poured over it.
Inside of this wafer "dish", the texture of the wafer is similar to an ice cream cone, are condiments like konbu (seaweed), bonito flakes, jakko (whitebait).
After removing the "dish" from the package, break it in half and put on top of your hot rice.
Pour over some brewed green tea or hoji cha (roasted green tea) and enjoy! (I used green tea)
We bought 2 types katsuo (bonito)/konbu (seaweed) and jakko (whitebait)/shiitake (a type of mushroom)...210 yen (about US$2.10) each. One "dish" is actually one serving.
We shared both over two breakfasts and loved the flavors. (This would definitely be nice during winter.)
After looking on the internet for information on this shop, I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have a counter at Hankyu Umeda. I hope to pick up more.
