There isn’t a English menu at this restaurant but they tried extremely hard helping explain the menu as best they could. They provide great one on one service and make you feel really special.


Is smoking allowed in some rooms?
Like a Japanese restaurant? You can eat delicious eel in the atmosphere of the restaurant.
It seems that they also have lunch, so I would like to come for lunch next time 😀


I found it on a business trip and brought it to you. It had a very elegant feel and you could feel it had a lot of history. The customer service was excellent and I ordered the course that seemed to be the best. The eel was naturally delicious, and the other sashimi were also excellent. I would like to stop by again if I have a chance.
