    This is a Kyoto cuisine restaurant in Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto. This window glass enclosed restaurant situated on the Kamo River provides a spacious atmosphere for dining. Popular for their secret Tokyo-style broiled eel sauce and other seasonal Kyoto cuisine, during the months of May through September one can enjoy your meal 'on the river', with seating on the deck erected over the river.

    We came here for their eel courses as it had come highly recommended by a local as one of the top 5 places for eel in Kyoto. Our first choice had been the Michelin starred Uole-ye U but it had been...

    Kyoto Kyoto-shi Sakyo-ku Iwakurakinocho 189
    This restaurant specializing in eel cuisine is located near Myoman-ji Temple in Rakuhoku. Its striking traditional mansion-like exterior makes heavy use of Japanese zelkova wood. Time seems to flow more slowly in its elegant interior, which has an air of nostalgia. You will want to try their nourishing unabe, which starts as an exquisite soup and finishes as rice gruel, as well as their unagi-zukushi, which features a full course meal of eel dishes.

    Matsuno is a grilled eel (unagi) specialty restaurant. It is located right on the busy main street in Kyoto. I tried the regular and the shiro unagi both are Ok but nothing special. The service is...

    Kyoto Kyoto-shi Higashiyama-ku
    This restaurant located next to the Kyoto Minami-za theater in Higashi 4-kenme, Shijo Minamiza Street is the flagship of a chain of restaurants specializing in eel cuisine. It has continued to pursue the essential flavors of eel since it was established in 1939. Guests can enjoy the flavors of a tradition that has remained unchanged in all these decades. The restaurant's specialty is its seiromushi, which features eel shipped straight from Lake Hamana served steamed on rice. Vapor rises out of the bamboo steamer the moment you open the lid to reveal the steamed eel, which is so exquisitely soft that the bones and sinew are virtually imperceptible. Another of their utterly refined dishes is their unaju, which features grilled eel served on rice in multi-tiered Wajima lacquerware boxes decorated with mother-of-pearl or gold inlay. Others include their kabayaki and shirayaki, which feature eel broiled with and without sauce, respectively.

    I am surprised that this restaurant is under rated. The eel is so good. Perhaps because its hidden in a small alley and its hard to find. One of the best eel restaurants in Kyoto. This unagi is not...

    日曜日のお昼時に伺いました。 基本的に配達が主なので、店内は4人掛けのテーブルが2台あるだけの小さなお店で、ご主人がひとりで切り盛りされています。 また、配達で出掛けられていることも多いらしいので、店内で食べる場合は事前連絡がベターとのことです。 メニューはうな重からうな丼、う巻きや茶碗蒸しの単品ものからうなぎ定食までいろいろあります。なぜか玉子丼や親子丼までラインナップされています。 今回...

    土用丑の日でもないけど、ふっと鰻食べたいわ-とネットで調べたら、市役所近くに鰻専門店を見付けて、電話予約してお昼を食べに行きました。「鰻は焼くのに2、30分待ってもらいますけど」と前もって言われましたが、それでも国産鰻食べたいしとお昼の鰻丼と肝吸いを注文さしてもらいました。待っている間に出て来た“鰻の骨せんべい”とっても香ばしかったわ-待ちに待った鰻丼と肝吸い、蓋を開けたら二切れチョコンした見た目...

    昔からある 鰻屋さんです。地下にあるのでわかりにくいですが、蒲焼きが得意なお店です。鰻丼上は全面を覆う鰻で満足しました。錦糸丼がこの日は食べれなかったのが残念です。

    おいしいうなぎを食べられると評判を得て、家族で行きました。閑静な住宅街にあります。家族はうな重を、私はひつまぶしを食べました。この日は浜名湖産うなぎを食べましたが、パリパリに焼いたうなぎは家族全員を満足させてくれました。値段は少し高めですが、この味なら不満はありません。今度はこの店の看板である共生うなぎを食べたいと思います。

    京阪の伏見稲荷の近く。観光客で賑わう商店街から少し離れているので空いていました。 鰻重の上。大きな鰻は照りがすごく、炭焼きの香ばしい匂いがします。 蒸していないので、関東風に慣れた自分には少し堅く感じます。 タレはとろりとして甘め。こういうスタイルもありですね。 お勘定は3,180円。 伏見稲荷参拝の際の食事処として良いと思います。

    I went to this restaurant by chance, and I do not go back again. My impression is that their eel is just like that of Gyudon restaurant.

Kyoto Main Areas

around-area-map

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
