Our tour guide brought us to this lovely steamed eel restaurant, which is located outside of the busier Yanagawa city. The price is reasonable and they even offer a minor discount if you want less rice. The main feature is of course the "Unagi/Eel" rice, which is prepared differently from your familiar unagi rice. They grilled them first but then steamed it afterward. The restaurant offers a set that features an unagi salad, steamed eel rice, miso soup, and pickles. For those who don't eat eel, they offer a Wagyu Beef set too.

We detoured to Yanagawa en route from Kagoshima to Fukuoka, specially to try this famous steamed/grilled unagi dish. Saray Fukutyu was a perfect choice. Not only was the fish done to perfection, the unagi sauce infused rice was very yummy too. The lovely ambience here, coupled with good services made the dining experience complete.

Taigetsukan Restaurant overlooks the Shotoen Garden and is one of the restaurants at the Ohana Estate. We had a set menu which had a main course of Yanagawa Nabe (Japanese loach and egg hotpot). It was delicious. If visiting the Ohana Estate I recommend you have a meal here.

The eel rice in Yanagawa is legendary and so is this restaurant. Was sceptical about eating eel which I had never tasted before but the dish is so beautifully prepared and the experience of eating it sitting on the floor is incomparable. Do try this after your river boat ride!

We passed by this restaurant during our canal boat cruise. The end of the cruise is actually just a few minutes walk back to the restaurant. Our friend told us that this restaurant is 300 years old, and it made Yanagawa's Unagi no Seiro Mushi dish famous! The menu is quite simple. Basically, the steamed eel dish is all there is on the menu. And it did not disappoint. Just the aroma of the dish alone made our mouths water. We loved the sauce they used for the dish - we found it perfectly balanced with the eel. Needless to say, we diligently polished off our food to the last grain of rice.

You can buy the Yanagawa and Dazaifu package with meal from Nishtetsu Station. With the meal coupon, you may choose one of the participating restaurants to have your lunch. Wakamatsuya is one of the participating restaurants. Judging by the queue, I think Wakamatsuya is certainly attracting both local and foreign visitors. You must be prepared to wait. At the end of the day, it is really worth the wait as the unagi rice is one of the best I have ever tasted. It was steamed in a wooden box with a fragrant sauce. Well. You have not come to Yanagawa if you have not tasted it.
