About the Book
If you have the slightest interest in food and plan to visit Tajimi, a visit to an unagiya - an eel restaurant - is a must. This writer was never a fan of eel before moving here, partly because my mother had always told me it is a fatty food. I didn't visit an unagiya even once during my years in Tokyo. But here in Tajimi I was soon invited to my first treat, and it was an eye-opener. Since then I have become something of an eel fan. For this article, I had the opportunity to interview Mr Hiroyuki Murate, the chef and owner of Uoseki, one of the most popular eel restaurants among foreign visitors to Tajimi.
