Lake Hamana Eel Motoshiro-tei

A specialty restaurant where you can enjoy eel with the best view in Hamamatsu, located 60 meters above ground.

Last update :

Located on the top floor (18th floor) of Hotel Concorde Hamamatsu, adjacent to Hamamatsu Castle, this specialty eel restaurant offers stunning panoramic views from 60 meters above ground.

The eel used at Motoshiro-tei is carefully selected from Lake Hamana. These eels are larger and fattier than usual, with consistent high quality. The thick, meaty eels are expertly cooked to perfection, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.

The sauce, derived from the recipe of Hotel Kyukou, is sweet and rich, complementing the eel perfectly. The rice is made from locally grown Hamamatsu Koshihikari, providing an excellent balance with the eel. The restaurant also takes great care with its condiments, offering whole domestic sansho peppers that customers can grind themselves to release the full aroma, enhancing the flavor of the eel.

From the north side of the restaurant, guests can enjoy views of the Southern Alps and the cityscape of Hamamatsu, while the south side offers views of Hamamatsu Castle, creating a unique dining experience.
