A Famous Unagi Restaurant with a 100-Year History in the Heart of the Shopping District
“Kyogoku Kaneyo” is an unagi restaurant that has been loved for around 100 years, located close to the Hankyu Corporation Kawaramachi station, right at the heart of the bustling shopping district. Its two-floored wooden construction looks very different to the stores around it, and the atmosphere is delightful; you can watch the chef at work cooking unagi from a window outside. Inside, the restaurant is steeped in Japanese style and atmosphere. The second floor is a tatami room with floor seating. The unagi is prepared with a long-kept secret sauce and cooked with a technique that has been passed down from generation to generation. Also of note is the store’s famous dish, “Kinshidon,” which is made with unagi and Japanese omelette and has quite an impact in both taste and looks.
