One of the best meals I had in Tokyo! I called to set up reservations and they were very accommodating despite my inability to speak Japanese. The food was absolutely incredible and I enjoyed each and every dish. By far the best unagi I’ve had and the service was among the kindest and most hospitable. Most photos show seiza sitting (on floor) but they were able to accommodate me by setting up a table and a chair. Overall an incredible experience and I couldn’t recommend it more highly!


Amazing experience!


Best unagi ever!!!
