We were certainly delighted by the crisp unagi layered on top of perfectly flavored rice with sauce. Pouring soup on the rice at the end of the meal was a pleasant ending to the delightful meal. It is certainly nothing close to the typical unagi that u get at the supermarket. We went to the Meitetsu outlet and no need... More

As a regular visitor to Japan, I cannot but highly recommend the unagi meal at this specialist restaurant. There is unagi and there is unagi in Unagi Shirakawa Joshin Honten.

This is our first ever Hitsumabushi cuisine in Nagoya. We were introduced the 3 ways to savour the unagi i.e. 1/3 unagi, 1/3 unagi with rice & condiments and 1/3 with the special soup over the unagi & rice. The price is reasonable given the quality of the meal and extremely personable service. Please put this on your itinerary whenever... More

My Japanese friend made reservation beforehand so we didn't have to wait for places to sit. They are famous for their Hitsumabushi, which is unagi rice. I was blown away by the taste of... More

Highly recommended this place for Unagi lovers. Best meal I had in Nagoya. They don't speak a word of English but at least they have a English menu.

If you don't read japanese, this restaurant can be challenging. But we went for food , not for a conversation and the fact that we did not understand a word didn't matter to the hosts, who would explain carefully all the beauty of their food ( I suppose that was the subject of the speeches). Food is great, the local... More
