The thriving eel production area of Hamamatsu has inspired the birth of a tasty, eel-shaped confectionery called Unagi Pie. Sweet and aromatic, Unagi Pie is known as one of Japan’s most popular souvenirs. More than 71 million Unagi Pies were produced annually before COVID-19. At the Unagi Pie Factory, visitors can take a tour and get a close-up look at the confectionery’s production process. Tour admission is free. In addition to the tour, you can sample Unagi Pie at the cafe and buy souvenirs at the gift shop adjacent to the factory. Why not take advantage of this unique opportunity to observe the production process of a popular Japanese confectionery?
