'Unagi(eel)' is traditional Japanese cooking ingredient, and it is endangered species.
Therefore, usually Japanese people eat aquafarming one, not natural one. Japanese biggest and most famous aquafarming place is Lake Hamana, it is west of this restaurant.

This restaurant is located next to Tenryu-River, on the Tokaido. It has more than 130 year history.

A lot of people come to here by car or taxi from Hamamatsu station.
(If you like walking, you can walk from Hamamatsu station.)

We can also eat aquafarming eel in this restaurant. However, this restaurant prepare one more step before cooking.
They stock a Tenryu-River with eel. Tenryu-River is very clean and cold, the water comes from snow of mountain.
Usually eel is a little bit stinky, but among Tenryu-River, they will have good flavor.

We cannot eat eel with good flavor, except this restaurant.

There are 2 menu, one is UNA-JUU (Grilled eel with Japanese sweet source and rice), the other is UNA-CHADUKE(eat UNA-JUU with 3steps, first eat with nothing, second eat with chopped raw green onion and Wasabi, third eat with Japanese soup stock).
I recommend UNA-CHADUKE, it is delicious.
