Japanese in Asakusa & Sumida River

This tiny place has a real old Edo flavour and is an unpretentious unagi (eel) restaurant. The menu is simple: a ‘small’ gets you two slices of charcoal-grilled eel over rice, a ‘large’ gets you three. The chef grills everything right behind the counter and they close when they sell out. Look for the light-green building with plants out the front.
