Dining in this beautiful, old-fashioned, traditional Japanese restaurant, famous for its eel dishes since the Edo Period, is unforgettable. A Japanese-style wooden house, hidden behind a wooden gate, it offers seven private tatami rooms, as well as a larger tatami dining room. The menu, in Japanese only, offers side dishes of soup, rice, and Japanese pickles, and such main dishes as kabayaki (broiled and basted eel), unaju (broiled eel on rice with a sweet sauce), shiroyaki ("white" eel, broiled without soy sauce or oil), and umaki (eel wrapped in an omelet). If you've never eaten eel, I can think of no finer place to first try it. Expect to spend a minimum of ¥7,500 ($62/£32) per person, including drinks, appetizers, and service. No one here speaks English, so it's best to have a Japanese-speaking person make your reservation, at which time you must order the dishes you'd like to be served.
