This place was fantastic! The village itself was gorgeous in a deep pine valley. After alighting from the cable car, be ready for the cool draft that comes out of the cave. The cave was stunning and quite long. After leaving the cave there is a short walk downhill through the forest to the 'nagashi-somen' restaurant. There are also fishing ponds available, where ¥1000 gets you four bamboo poles and bait. You can catch as many fish as you can until you lose your hooks. The rainbow trout were delicious. BBQ's were available for free to grill your fish, as were the cleaning stations for the fish. Modest charges for plates, cutlery, salt etc. No other BBQ food is allowed. This was a great day trip from Nagoya for the family.

Gujo, and its neighbouring town Seki are known for their freshwater eels, given the towns' clean and clear waters. We made it a point to have eel for dinner the one night we stayed in Gujo, and went to Uotora for dinner. The restaurant closes at 8pm, and when we went at about 7pm we were the only diners there. The tourist town of Gujo quietens down at night after the day tripping tourists leave I guess.Uotora has a long history of serving up their specialty eel dishes, and this came through clearly in their food. We had the charcoal grilled eel served in 2 different styles - one with a dark sauce and one without, and both were absolutely delicious, and expertly grilled - slightly crisp on the outside yet soft on the inside.If you are an Unagi aficionado, or even if you've never eaten eel before, this is the place to go to!

My girlfriend and I ate here and couldn't be happier with the food and service given.From the outside there's no sign of English support but when entering were asked of our Japanese ability and given an English menu which helped with deciding what to eat.The staff were incredibly friendly and made every effort to help us understand what each food was and how we should prepare and eat it. They even offered us their own ice cream after requesting a dessert menu but being told they didn't serve it.We had the hida beef set menu and it was great, would definitely recommend.

Arriving a little late into Gujo we noticed a lot of restaurants closed for the night(Monday).We stumbled across this little shop, it looked open and we where hungry.It was an amazing find.We could not read any of the menu nor could the owners speak any English.Thus we opted for the set menu and some local sake. It is always fun to try something new.The lady that served us did her very best to help us when the food came.Even going as far as showing us how to de-bone the fish and how to drink the mushroom soup.It made you feel like you were in someone's home kitchen.The restaurant was very nice inside and seemed to have a few locals eating and talking. It also looked like it had been around for a very long time.The food was also very good. Not exactly sure what all the dishes where but they all tasted quite good.The stand out dishes I feel for this set menu where :* Fresh mixed local mushroom soup.* Ayu fish.* Hida beef.The sake and rice where also quite nice!The mushroom soup was one of the best we had during this stay in Japan.We where very glad to find this store.

Little restaurant with kind and efficient service (even though they do not speak any English).The two unagi sets we tried were out of this world: really tasty, well-cooked and juicy. They were paired with rice, miso soup and little desserts.Totally worth the slightly higher price than a usual lunch in a Japanese small town.

We went as a family of five at lunchtime on Saturday. The wait for a table was about 30 minutes as this place is very popular. There are basically three items on the menu: soba noodles, tempura vegetables and a small dessert. We liked all three, and found the soba very refreshing. Yuzu tea as part of the dessert was again very refreshing.
