    Chiba Pref. Naritashi Nakamachi 386
    It is a long-established eel restaurant located on the road approaching Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. Every day, it is crowded with customers who come aiming to eat eel. The secret sauce enhances the flavor of the eel which has been gently grilled with proficient skill to retain a full texture: the secret sauce has continued to be added to the eel extract since the establishment of the business in 1910 during the Meiji period. The interior of the store is a place you can feel relieved as if you had come back to the countryside. Please be advised that seats cannot be guaranteed by making a reservation.

    Well, demonstration was interesting, disappointed by actual unagi meal. The bones were not soft enough, annoying! That was the third unagi meal I had in this trip and not impressed at all.
