Tsuruya is a Japanese restaurant in Yuigahama of Kamakura, grilling the handpicked eels piece by piece.  We are proud that Tsuruya received the Michelin star in 2011 and honored to be loved by the customers since we opened our restaurant 1929.



  We start cooking on order instead of making some preparation for the quick-serve.  We cut a live eel, boil and then broil it over the charcoal so that each customer could enjoy the eel at the best condition.  It takes about 50 minutes.  Therefore, we would like you to be patient before you enjoy the traditional Japanese eel dishes.


  Our eels are served on the steamed rice in Jyuu (wood box) or Don (Donburi, chinabowl) at your option.


  In Tsuruya's case, we cook in the same way for Jyuu and Don and the difference is only the style of the container.  Even so, Jyuu is generally more popular because of it's appearance.  Our Jyuu are applied Japanese lacquer-works and Kamakura-bori arts.


  You have another option to have the grilled eel on a plate.  These without-rice items would be a good choice as the side dishes.



 Never mind wearing shoes on the first floor.  However, we ask our customers to change their shoes to the slippers in the restroom. (Toilet is the western style.)
  We are afraid that it sounds strange to the overseas visitors, but this style still remains in more than a few classic Japanese restaurants and hotels.  Your cooperation would be highly appreciated.



See you at Tsuruya.

Enjoy the traditional Japanese foods.
