A stew-type dish that lets you enjoy the real taste of tofu

Yudofu is a type of stew using tofu and is a winter staple in Kyoto. It's a simple dish that uses just tofu, water, kelp, and a dipping sauce. The kelp is laid on the bottom of the stewpot, then tofu is added and heated, after which it is taken out and eaten together with the dipping sauce. Kyoto is blessed with good quality water so there are a variety tofu based cuisines to choose from, but the distingushing feature of yudofu is that you can enjoy the deliciousness of tofu all by itself.
