    Shizuoka Pref. Mishimashi Hirokoujichou 13-2
    A long-standing eel restaurant founded in 1856 famous for its long lines of patrons waiting to get in. Inside the restaurant’s stately and solemn building, visitors will be charmed by a subdued atmosphere which conveys a sense of history and tradition. The restaurant’s recipes are family traditions which have been passed down since Sakuraya was founded, and regulars note that your meal is sure to be delicious no matter when you come. The restaurant’s eel “jubako” (stacked boxes of eel over rice) are particularly popular. Sakuraya let’s its top quality eels swim for several days in snowmelt from Mt. Fuji to marinate them, after which they are lovingly broiled with sauce to create meat that is flavorful, aromatic, and plump. The restaurant also offers a wide selection of individual menu items and course dishes. The closest station is Mishima-Hirokoji Station.

    We love Unagi dishes and visit Unagi restaurant every two months. Sakuraya restaurant is one of best choice from the view point of taste we think. Not so sweet, with a little smoky flavor is munching...

With the giant Pacific Ocean to the south and the great Mount Fuji to the north, Shizuoka prefecture is blessed with some of the best views the country has to offer. The white sand beaches of the Izu Peninsula are a rare find on mainland Japan, neighbored by beautiful cliffs, tumbling hills, and natural hot springs. As Japan's largest producer of green tea, the age-old tradition of tea drinking is ubiquitous in Shizuoka, from the miles of tea fields to the old tea houses hosting traditional tea ceremonies.
