Inagiya can be found along Shinobazu-dori, about a ten-minute walk from Nishi-Nippori Station. In addition to a range of different eel dishes, including both Kansai and Kanto-style unaju, hitsumabushi (chopped and flavoured grilled eel with rice served in a special lacquered bowl called a hitsu) and shirayaki-don (plain, grilled eel on rice), they also stock a range of nihonshu and shochu. The kabayaki here is soft and airy, held together by a skin that gives it a firm bite and basted in a sauce with a clean, simple flavour.
