    Chiba Pref. Naritashi Nakamachi 359
    This eel vendor is near the main gate of Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. They roast kyosui eel raised in the Oigawa River, fed by water from the Southern Japan Alps, over binchotan charcoal, brushed with a secret sauce made with fine varieties of soy sauce and mirin cooking sake. Dishes include eel served marinated on rice, kabayaki style, and shirayaki style. Other cuisine features carp and suigo (riverside district) fowl.

    This place pretty much only sells eel, so if you wanted to try something else, too bad. It might have been a little tourist gimmick, but I did like the fact that the servers were all in traditional...

    Chiba Pref. Naritashi Nakamachi 385
    A Japanese restaurant located along the Omotesando (temple approach) to Narita-san Shinsho-ji Temple in Nakamachi, Narita City. The restaurant serves all sorts of set meals, formal meals, individual dishes and course meals, as well as unagi-ju and unagi-don (types of eel on rice dishes) using domestically sourced eel and naturally sourced eel on rice depending on the season. The restaurant has honorably received the Imperial chrysanthemum emblem from Shinsho-ji Temple which has been used as the current restaurant name since from at least the Tenpo period.

    Was planning on coming here for a good meal when I had a layover in Narita. In addition to being conveniently close to Naritasan temple, this place oozes traditional atmosphere and is cozily...

    The eel is grilled properly with charcoal. It has a strong charcoal flavor on it. However, the eel is a bit too soft (not crispy) and it has a lot of small bones. Not bad if you love grilled eel...

    年に何度かうな重を食べに行きます。 今年一回目のうな重を食べに行きました。 ウナギは冬が一番脂がのっていておいしいんですよ。 夏のウナギは、冬のウナギと比べると脂身が少なくなり旨味は 下がります。 だから、脂身の多いうな重を食べたければ冬の時期が良いです。 さて、水産センターのうな重は、並、上、特上があります。 並は¥2500。 特上は¥3800。 写真を添付しましたが、写真の上に映っている...

    Our local friends drove us to this place. They wanted us to have eel, which we were not familiar with. What a great experience! It was really delicious, as all other parts of this lunch. Frendly...

    Stopping off after several hours wandering through Shinsho-ji Temple on a hot August day. The late lunch of Unagi (fresh water eel) was very good and the beer was cold. There were many Unagi...
