I had lunch at a restaurant that specializes in tofu and yuba dishes. (Yuba is the skim from boiled soymilk.) It's located on the 24th floor of a hotel, so depending on where you sit you can get a panoramic view of the city. You also have to take your shoes off when you enter, because the main floor of the restaurant is covered with tatami. It was a very luxurious setting.
After lunch I went to explore the opposite side of the station, where there were more stores. I encountered the most ghetto department store I think I've ever seen in Japan. Most department stores have supermarkets in the basement, but when I went to see the supermarket in this one, I really felt like I was in a dark alley. It was almost surreal.
On the way back, I took some snapshots of manhole covers. Every city has its own design for its manhole covers. On the left is Moriyama's, with a glowing firefly. The one on the right is from Rittou.
