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.

Shizuoka Main Areas
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.
