These guys make unagi-ju from live eel every day. The texture of the eel is tender and delicate. Very, very light on the sweet soy sauce so you can taste the fresh eel. Extra sauce on the side if you want to add more.
You may have to wait in line so be prepared. We were lucky to get there a bit after 11am to get the last open table. Be prepared to wait ~30min to cook the eel once you have ordered. Menu is limited just small, med and large and teriyaki-ju for those that don't like eel which we also ordered. Large was sold out as well as the special eel liver appetizer so reserve those before you get there if important to you. $40 for the medium size which is reasonable considering it costs $30 for a smaller frozen eel from Japan at a supermarket in the states.
Worth the quick stop over (15 min by car) to the quaint city of Narita if you are flying in/out of the airport.
