A serving bar and a room for parties of 8-ish, (maybe 10). Amazing food, few tourists. Eel done amazingly well.


A local secret! Unagi in all dishes. Very good


Small, cozy restaurant specialising Unagi(eel) dishes, capacity must be 20max, Japanese-traditional style restaurant. Staff I met was old couple, they takes their time to serve you but Unajyu was really delicious and eel/rice portiom ratio was perfectly balanced for me.


Translated from Japanese:

This is an eel restaurant located in a location known only to those in the know. I had been looking into it for a while and had wanted to come someday. It was elegant, odorless and very delicious. The interior is very clean, and behind the counter there is a lot of sake...


Translated from Japanese:

The taste is exquisite! The utensils are also nice! The private room is also beautiful! The toilets are also very considerate ^_^ The eel is perfectly grilled and the rice is soaked in the sauce, which is delicious! Oshinko is also beautifully arranged in a beautiful bowl! It's wonderful to feel the thoughtfulness of the store...


Translated from Japanese:

I wanted to eat delicious eel, so my partner made a reservation and took us there. It's a little walk from Ebisu Station, and it's a small shop, but it has a nice atmosphere. When you step inside, you'll find a clean, beautiful, and reasonable Japanese style...
