Kawatoyo Honten

Other Japanese Food
It is a long-established eel restaurant located on the road approaching Naritasan Shinshoji Temple. Every day, it is crowded with customers who come aiming to eat eel. The secret sauce enhances the flavor of the eel which has been gently grilled with proficient skill to retain a full texture: the secret sauce has continued to be added to the eel extract since the establishment of the business in 1910 during the Meiji period. The interior of the store is a place you can feel relieved as if you had come back to the countryside. Please be advised that seats cannot be guaranteed by making a reservation.

  • Gem of a eatery
    5.0 Reviewed : 2022.12.21
    This little gem begging for a visit when Narita. It’s nestled halfway between Narita station and Shinshoji temple along the traditional Narita-san Omotesando street. With eel roasting on the grills...
  • Watch unagi cutting demonstrations

    Well, demonstration was interesting, disappointed by actual unagi meal.The bones were not soft enough, annoying! That was the third unagi meal I had in this trip and not impressed at all.
  • Waiting in line is worth it, excellent, fresh eel, prepared as you watch.

    Prepare to wait (you can draw a number and return but it is more fun to watch the eels being prepared, chopped and scraped on a huge single piece ginko wood table) and be willing to share a table...
