    The famous dish at Sekai-no-Yamachan is Maboroshi-no-Tebasaki, chicken wings with a taste that has not changed since its founding, and one of the popular aspects of this store is that all of the courses require three hours. Guests can relax and savor their dishes that come with a reasonable price and are very filling. The Miso Kushi Katsu and Miso Uzura (quail) Tamago Fry on the grand menu are also popular and many repeaters come back for them. It is approximately 10 minutes from Sakaemachi Station on the underground Meijo Line.

    Great fun family style restaurant. Economic prices and food full of flavor. They are famous for their chicken wings. These are a must try. Drinks were also good value. They become busy at dinnertime.

    A restaurant which orders select eel from various areas depending on the season. Shirakawa’s hitsumabushi eel over rice is prepared with particular care and is extraordinary.

    This eel specialty restaurant, famous for their version of the Nagoya specialty hitsumabushi (eel rice bowl), is located in the Esca Underground Shopping Center beneath Nagoya Station. Their hitsumabushi uses carefully selected eels which are covered with their secret sauce that uses a rich tamari-soy sauce base and cooked over ubame oak charcoal to create a luxuriant sweet-smelling dish. The taste of the crisp grilled skin is unbelievable. Their kimoyaki (grilled eel liver) and shirayaki (unseasoned grilled eel) are also popular menu items. Being located right next to the bullet train ticket gates this is the perfect place to round off a business trip or vacation.

    A long-established udon restaurant founded in the middle of the Meiji period and said to be the originator of the Okazaki specialty kama-age udon (udon noodles straight from the pot). It was said that kama-age udon came about because the restaurant owner at the time picked up boiled udon directly from the pot and ate it warm. The udon noodles are especially chewy in texture and the broth is a closely guarded secret! Their miso-nikomi udon made with the local traditional Hatcho miso is popular with celebrities and many people alike. The nearest stations are Okazakikoen-mae Station and Naka-Okazaki Station.

Aichi Areas

Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
