Grilled eel (unagi)
Hamana Lake was where aquaculture of eels began in Japan. The eels are carefully raised in pens dug along the lakeshore from fry caught in Hamana Lake or elsewhere. Eels have been a delicacy in Japanese cuisine for more than 1,000 years, and are a rich source of vitamin A. Hamamatsu offers many restaurants serving high-quality unagi (eel) at affordable prices.
