Eel restaurant in Kawagoe

by Noriko

Another aspect of Kawagoe is eel dishes.  Ogagiku restaurant specializes in unagi, eel dishes.  One side of a long eel is cut and opened, and grilled over fire.  Then special sweet soy sauce is put on the grilled eel, and the eel is placed over white rice.  Ogagiku restaurant was built about 100 years ago.  It's very rare to find 3-story wooden house.

My name is Noriko Nagura. I am a government-certified tour guide. I now live in Saitama. What I especially like about Saitama is Kawagoe city. Kawagoe is full of history and culture -- traditional kura-zukuri houses, Kawagoe castle, gorgeous portable shrines used at Kawagoe festival, Kita-in temple that was loved and taken care of by Ieyasu Tokugawa and Iemitsu Tokugawa, famous shoguns in Edo period (from 1603 to 1867).
