Kawagoe has many unagi (eel) shops that has been around for nearly 200 years since the Edo period.
There is no sea in this area, so the eels are taken from the surrounding river, which is a popular and important protein source of the townspeople.

This long-established restaurant was opened in 1832 (Edo period).
The style of the shop has an Edo period feeling.
