Every summer, Japan celebrates Unagi Day (not an official public holiday) by eating – of course – unagi (eel), and this year’s Unagi Day is calculated to be on 30th July. While one would not need a reason or a special day to savor delicacies such as unagi, however, we felt compelled to share with you Kyoto’s best unagi to help you beef up your appetite for your next trip to Kyoto!
Arashiyama is well-known for its bamboo forest and great scenery, but its unagi delicacies are also not be missed. Hirokawa, situated in a few streets down the famous Katsura River, is a quaint little Japanese house that serves up the highest quality unagi and other Japanese cuisines made from fresh hand-picked ingredients. If you are lucky enough to get the counter seat, you can also treat your eyes to a feast of beautiful sceneries overlooking the mountains!
If you love unagi, be sure to make a reservation at Hirokawa when you’re in Arashiyama!
