This long-established neighborhood shop is known for the high quality of their eels, which are brought in every morning from Shizuoka, after which they're left to swim around in a big tub filled with fresh well water. The painstaking charcoal-grilling process begins once you place your order, and it can take 30-45 minutes for the main course to arrive. Unagi over rice (unaju) comes in four grades priced at Y1300-2100, and there's also a special Y5000 set menu.
