Koi to Unagi no Marumasuya Sohonten


Restaurants & Cafés


Koi to Unagi no Marumasuya Sohonten can be found not far from the east exit of Akabane Station, along Ichibangai shopping street. Open from 9am, it’s actually an izakaya (Japanese-style pub); however, they grill eels by the shop front – the aroma of which wafts down the street attracting customers – and serve a variety of dishes such as kabayaki, shirayaki (plain grilled eel), unadon and unaju. The kabayaki here comes basted in a unpretentious, uncluttered sauce, with crispy skin and meat that's plump and succulent. In addition to eel, they also serve koi carp, catfish and various other freshwater fish. At the front of the shop, customers can watch as staff fillet the fish.
