Eel restuarant located in the older part of downtown, located on a small side street. We walked to the restuarant from the nearest metro. Took about 10 to 15 mins. We made a reservation for a table a couple of weeks before. However we were given seating around the bar on ground floor, and not a table. Relatively small restuarant. I think they have upstairs seating. We ordered 2 eel sets. One white eel and one brown eel. Tried ordering the premium eel, but they were sold out. Very big portion. Extremely full after eating. Had a beer. Around JPY10k for the 2 of us. Spent around 1 hour here. Good quality eel


Great spot for local unagi dish. Small but very good. Food was fantastic.
