Just had heard of its great reputation for its fantastic eel rice combo set before I got to Nagoya, and definitely it left me perfect impression. The restaurant was a traditional Japanese mansion with a Japanese-style garden and pond, where I could easily appreciate such...More

Amazing restaurant! The wait was an hour but well worth it. The food was delicious and the service was really good. And being from NYC, the price wasn’t bad either about $55 for two people.

It is surely worth waiting for an hour in a long queue even on a terribly hot summer day. Once you get a bite, you'll forget it.

After visiting the shrine, a must place to have a meal. Unagi is oily which could only mean better quality of eel. The service was clockwork.

Recommended restaurant to taste a tasty eel in Nagoya. The queue around dinner time is pretty long but move quite fast. The must-try dish here is hitsumabushi.

We went all the way to the main shop as the building looks great. The queue was long but you can register earlier, say, around 10am for 11:30am or 1pm or else you might not get a table.
