Worth the wait for just under 1.5 hours. The eel, the rice, the sauce, the condiments, everything were perfect. Hitsumabushi just could not get better elsewhere. Went again at 5pm the next day (Tuesday). Even better, straight in, no queue.

You go out to the east side of JR NAGOYA( SAKURA-DORI side) and you can find MEITETU departmentstore infront of the gate. MARUYA is on the 9 floor of the departmentstore.
