During an evening layover in Narita, family drove in from Tokyo and picked us up to visit the Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. Along the Omotesando, the sinuous path to the temple grounds, this restaurant was one of very few that was still open in the late evening -- and a welcomed respite of warmth from the January cold air, especially for...

I took my American bf to there. We enjoyed Sashimi platter, Tempura platter and ell bowl were 8000yen. Tempura was amazing Sashimi was fresh but we could not enjoy ell as we expected. It was so tender just a bit greasy with fishy skins. I recommend took skins off before eat.

Great unagi (eel) before/after Tokyo I think. This place is easy to access at narita and I normally on rental car and it is easy to get by with the local gps and there is quite a few carpark nearby for you to park you car. You can either explore the street as it is quite a good feel, or... More

One of many places serving fresh eel but this is one of the oldest and most well known. The fish are freshly "prepared" on the street side and one can observe the process. Inside seating is typical of Japan but normal tables are also available. The grilled eel was good and didn't have a strong taste of any kind. Staff... More

I have made it a custom to eat here every time I stay in Narita, and this was the third time in nine years. I find a stay in Narita, and a visit to the Narita temple area to be a great way to transition into things before heading to Tokyo. The ambience of the temple area, the street that... More

A very nice experience for lunch -- friendly service and delicious food. The menu is rather limited, so based on the other reviews I tried eel for the first time. Tender and delicious, it was almost like a delicate filet of flounder. A bit pricey, but overall an excellent choice just steps away from the Famous Naritasan Shinshoji Temple.

Stopped by for lunch today. We had the set eel lunch for 2200¥. Food was delicious and the staff was very welcoming to non Japanese speakers. Highly recommend!
