Iwakuni sushi--a local specialty of Iwakuni--is not even available in the nearby Yamaguchi City, a mere 1.5 hour car ride away. Which is reason enough to give it a try. But just in case you need further persuasion, suffice it to say that its oh-so-Japanese composition of renkon (lotus root), eggs and chrysanthemum petals, sawara (Spanish mackerel) and aji (horse mackerel) in an unique presentation of a large rectangular block should give you the extra incentive to eat it for lunch.
Honestly speaking, I don't particularly like renkon although the renkon salad was rather delicious. But given that my couchsurfing host mother bought renkon so that she could make renkon salad for her family that night, I will vouch for the authenticity of this dish (Japanese love it!) and heartily recommend that you give it a try^^

Favorite thing: Take the walk that takes you beside the river in Chomonkyou gorge.
The fact that we passed only a few people and had a picnic beside the river and that it was a beutiful spring day all added to the gorgeous scenery.
