Surprisingly it was so difficult to find available tables at this little restaurant but luckily we found one and I must say we loved it. Delicious eel with rice and other Japanese stuff. If you want to find a table quickly, the best time is around 15:30. I would recommend this place if you fancy eel.

We visited Miyajima today and saw the line forming outside this famous restaurant before it even opened at 10 am. We knew it would be the place to stop on the way home. We arrived roughly at 12:15 and when we did, there was more than a 1 hour wait for a table, but a 30 minute wait to take... More

We were staying in the nearby Coral hotel in Miyajimaguchi and were looking for dinner options, and saw this place on Tripadvisor. Oysters and anago are Miyajima's two specialties, but since I detest oysters and love eel this was an obvious choice for me. Ueno Anagomeshi closes early (18:30), so we rushed over and found the place half-empty at 18h.... More

A famous conger eel rice restaurant located between Miyajima-guchii JR station and Miyajima ferry terminal. Bought a take-away boxed conger eel rice and went on a picnic on Miyajima. It is full of sauced conger eel. The sauce also went down to the rice and make it delicious too. The only drawback is the price, which is a bit high... More

When we went, there weren't a lot of people and we only need to wait 15 mins to get in. Hint: if you have bought Visit Hiroshima Tourist Pass", the rice is half price from 2000yen to 1000 yen. What a bargain!!

Go early if you want to eat here. The restaurant opens at 10am. We arrived at 10:30am and there was already a half hour wait. We decided to buy a Bento to eat at Miyajima. Rice was flavourful and the Anago was grilled just right. Only down side is that being a Bento it was not warm.

I visited this old established Anago restaurant on weekday for lunch. I arrived there at 1.30pm, but already over 100 people waited. A staff gave a number card, and I waited for 1 hour at waiting room where was next to the restaurant. After that, a staff called my number. We sat a table and ordered two anago bowls. Only... More

Grilled anago was good. 2 hour wait for a table and loooong line just to get to-go boxes. Final verdict: No great shakes. Not worth the hype. Of course considering the pool of options in the area, it may well have been better than the rest. In my opinion, best to make a day trip of Hiroshima and plan to... More

our family had lunch here after visiting Miyajima Island and even though we had to wait an hour to get seated, it was well worth it. The anago, sea eel, was fantastic!
