A store full of luxury
I haven't been able to come up with the price myself though.
It was a light sauce rather than a sweet one, which I didn't like, but it was delicious. The tatami room was also nice. The rice, the soup, and the side dish are perfect for my taste.
I would like to add about 2 more pieces as a side dish.


Since it is located in Kasai, you can eat it at this price, but it is a restaurant that serves delicious eel.
Eel is domestically produced and has a delicious aroma and just the right amount of oil.
The take-out eel set comes with liver soup and oshiko, which is very satisfying.


The taste and price were both good, the store was clean, and the staff had no complaints! I'll visit you again!
I forgot to take a photo, but the seaweed was delicious too! Great as a snack until the eel is cooked.

The distance from the station seems a bit far, but it wasn't a problem as it only took about 10 minutes on foot. If you are interested, please take a one-meter taxi.
