This Michelin-starred restaurant is recognised for its excellent grilled eel, or unagi, and is a short walk away from the % Arabica Kyoto Arashiyama store. The waiting queue to eat may take at least 30 minutes, especially around lunch time. We suggest booking one of their private rooms, which you can reserve in advance for only 1000 Yen. Their signature dish is grilled unagi served on hot rice, available in multiple sizes, from small (una don) to extra large (tokujyou una jyu). While most unagi is served the same way, grilled, steamed, and basted in a sweet, and salty sauce, Hirokawa has perfected its dish since its establishment in 1967. While you're in Arashiyama, it's a must-visit that's definitely worth the wait.
