Last weekend we had lunch at the Soholm restaurant in Tennozu. The restaurant serving Scandinavian cuisine is a little out of the way, but has a very relaxing atmosphere with good food. It specializing in gibier (game) with venison and boar this time of the year.
The seats facing the canal is great if its not too hot. (It was very hot the day we went so we sat inside, which was also quite nice.) The portions were sufficient (compared to many other Japanese restaurants) and 1,500 yen for a holiday lunch consisting of a 2 course meal + coffe/tea is a good value. The only disappointment for me was that the glass of wine was only 1/3 full and it cost 800 yen!
The deck by the canal is a great place to have stroll if the weather is nice. Next time we will try the bakery cafe next to the TY Harbor restaurant which also faces the canal.
