Unagi or Japanese freshwater eel, has been consumed in Japan for centuries. Unajyu and Ohitsu are couple of the staple dishes and the recipes for these ever-popular Japanese traditional foods is said to have been around since the Edo period (1603 ~ 1868). Our restaurant was founded in 1909 as an Unagi market in one of Japan's renowned Unagi locations, Hamamatsu in the Shizuoka prefecture. Our special Unagi sauce has been carefully passed down from generation to generation and to this day, we continue to proudly offer our original flavor, which has kept our customers satisfied for over a century. Every Japanese unagi served at our 11 restaurants are carefully selected by our chefs and prepared using the same traditional cooking methods since we first opened our doors.
