If you love unagi, this restaurant is a must! Unagi Hitsumabushi is a famous dish in Nagoya. I felt the portions were huge, but I wanted to finish every last bite because the eel and even the rice is top quality.

We went all the way to the main shop as the building looks great. The queue was long but you can register earlier, say, around 10am for 11:30am or 1pm or else you might not get a table.
