If you like "How It's Made", this is a place for you. The instruction of how the "unagi pie" is made is pretty cool. It is called eel pie because they grind up the dried bones from eels caught and processed from Lake Hamamatsu. The...More

This place is great. Its free and you get some of their Unagi Pie for free as a gift. You can actually see the local Unagi Pie being made in the factory right in front of you. The free admission is definitely great!

We really enjoyed the tour of the unagi (eel) pie factory. Unfortunately there's no public transport to the site so we took a taxi from Takatsuka Station (small station but there's a taxi rank there) costing about $25 each way. The tour itself was free...More
