Whether you're traveling for work or leisure, when you're in a place far away from home you most likely want to taste local specialties while you're at it. You might not have enough time in your schedule, but not to worry! If you only have an hour to spare before your shinkansen (bullet train) departs, it is a chance to visit several places serve local food and easy access from the station so that you can squeeze in some of the regional cuisines. Here are a few examples!
