They close at 2pm and reopen at 4pm. I happen to arrive at 1.59pm and they still accept food orders but strictly refuse all other customers who arrives at 2pm. Nothing special for the unagi. Doesnt live up the hype. Unagi is good but could easily find a similar standard one anywhere in tokyo.

It was hands down the best Unagi I had in Japan. Atmosphere was rather very quiet. Three sizes of Unagi were offered. I chose the regular and it was plenty enough. Highly recommend this place.

We had the regular size unaju (eel on top of rice) for 2,800 yen. It came with a soup. Tasty and filling. Lots of families with older crowds were eating there. There might be a line during peak time of the day.
