Freshwater eel with a Michelin star in 2020, just 20 minutes from Tokyo Station.

Restaurant Details

Far from the tower blocks of the city center, the old neighborhood of Minami-senju has a much more historic vibe. This freshwater eel restaurant benefits from setting up in this location, with a wide open tatami-floored dining room — in stark contrast to the claustrophobic counters of the central business district. The recommended specialty here is grilled eel with tare sauce, served on a bed of rice. Alternatively try shiroyaki, a very simply served eel which you can season with salt and wasabi, or just enjoy as it is. You’ll be waiting for around 40 minutes after ordering, but thankfully they offer some great small dishes for you to tuck into while you wait. Foremost among these is the umaki: a Japanese omelet with sliced eel sandwiched in between. Easily accessible from Ueno, this 2020 Michelin-starred restaurant is the place to go for both unagi first-timers and long time fans. Michelin Stars: 2020 - 1 Michelin star 2021 - none
