About Us

Eel restaurant established in 1909 in Nishiki, Naka-ku, Nagoya.

Since its founding in 1909, we have been spinning our History together with the city of Nagoya.


In 1909 (Meiji 42) Founded by the founder Shoji in Buhei-cho, Higashi-ku, Nagoya.
In 1945 The building of restaurant was burned down by fire during the Nagoya Air Raid. After the war, business reopened at a temporary restaurant in Nishiki 2-chome.
In 1952 The current restaurant building was completed at Nishiki 3-chome and relocated.
In 1970 The restaurant was remodeled to operate only on the first floor.
Now in its 6th generation.

Our History has been along with the development of the city of Nagoya, such as the opening of the Higashiyama Subway Line between Sakae and Nagoya Station and the completion of the TV Tower. We are here today thanks to the love of our many customers. We really appreciate your continued support.

Enjoy the full flavor of eel from Kyushu, Japan.

We use eels from Kyushu*, which have a stable flavor throughout the year. The eels are carefully grilled over charcoal to a crispy, aromatic flavor, according to the characteristics of each individual eel. The sauce is a blend of local tamari soy sauce. It is moderately sweet and enhances the rich flavor of the eel. *The origin may change depending on distribution conditions.
