If you like "How It's Made", this is a place for you. The instruction of how the "unagi pie" is made is pretty cool. It is called eel pie because they grind up the dried bones from eels caught and processed from Lake Hamamatsu. The...More

This place is great. Its free and you get some of their Unagi Pie for free as a gift. You can actually see the local Unagi Pie being made in the factory right in front of you. The free admission is definitely great!

Nothing exciting about this factory visit. There are more educational experience available in the area. OK if you go for the cafe or just have no better option on a rainy day.

If you're in the area, or even passing through and you have children that have a penchant for factories and conveyer belt things then it's well worth going. The cafe is probably the best part for adults, sweets and tea were delectable.

We were allowed to try the various flavor of the eel biscuits. The best is the chocolate ice cream type.

The factory of eel was very nice, because you could eat some of pies free. I guess people in other country thinks that 'eel factory' is a little bit disgusting but it is actually not true! They call 'eel factory', because in my opinion it...More

We really enjoyed the tour of the unagi (eel) pie factory. Unfortunately there's no public transport to the site so we took a taxi from Takatsuka Station (small station but there's a taxi rank there) costing about $25 each way. The tour itself was free...More
