I would say this one not for everyone as the fish is very oily and slimmery. But do try if you are in Japan as it is a delicacy and I'm convinced you can't have a better one outside here. It's well worth it! Arrive...More

The location is difficult to find. You need good preparation. But once you get into the restaurant, the atmosphere is traditional Japanese you like. The foods? Super delicious! You never find this quality of eel outside Japan.
