About Matsuno

Thank you for visiting our website

Since its foundation in 1939, Matsuno has sought the ideal taste of eel dishes for many years as a restaurant specializing in eel dishes. Eels are fish that have been long loved by Japanese people since around the 8th century. Though eels are delicate and the taste may change depending on the season and weather, our expert chefs grill them carefully to preserve the delicate, soft flesh and to attain the meltingly delicious taste. Moreover, Matsuno makes every effort to create a more delicious taste each day and considers how to make guests happy by serving eel dishes.

Every time we hear many people from young children to decades-old loyal customers say, “Matsuno’s savory eel dish is very nice” or “I like Matsuno’s eel dish the best because it is soft,” we feel a responsibility to retain this taste.

We welcome all guests and enthusiastically strive to bring smiles of satisfaction to their faces as they leave our restaurant, which reflects our strong desire to please the customer that has been maintained since our foundation.

Inheriting the will of Rika Matsuno, the restaurant’s founder who loved all kinds of handwork, RakuhokuMatsunomanryou features a traditional Japanese house built of keyaki trees (Zelkovaserrata) and is located near Myomanji Temple in Rakuhoku, Kyoto. Designed by the ceramic artist Tsuneji Ueda, the house recalls traditional Japanese scenery.
