    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.

    Poor service. The man at the door was extremely rude and made us wait for 2 hrs in the cold while the restaurant is only half full. No service at all. Will never go back again. The unagi was no good...

    Shizuoka Pref. Mishimashi Midorichou 21-6
    This eel restaurant was established over 60 years ago in Mishima City, Shizuoka Prefecture. It is a very popular restaurant that sells out at lunchtime even on weekdays, to the point that it almost never stays open until the evening. Its most famous dish is the unagi-don eel bowl topped with aromatic broiled eel. There are three secrets to its deliciousness: the underground water from Mt. Fuji in which the eels are kept alive for several days, the sauce made from a secret recipe added to over the years and the cooking skills of the chefs that are passed down through the generations. The unagi liver tsukudani (preserved in sweetened soy sauce) and hone sembei (crackers made from eel bones) are popular as gifts to take home.

    三島でも有名な店です。休日でしたが、たまたま、ほとんど並ばずに入ることができました。うなぎは柔らかくて美味しかったです。お値段もそこそこ行きます。

Shizuoka Main Areas

around-area-map

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.
