Since domestically produced eel is expensive, the price of eel rice bowl is often set high.Although there is a wide range of prices, even the cheapest ones are in the 1000 yen range.Some of the more expensive ones cost over 10000 yen.For these reasons, many people think of ``luxury Japanese food = eel bowl''.


Rice bowlthe oldest in the history ofCultural year(1804-1818).

There are various theories about its origin, and Miyagawa Seiun's "The Origin of Secular Affairs" (1885) mentions Sakaimachi (laterTokyoPuppet town)'s playhouse "Nakamura-za"Imasuke OkuboHowever, it is written that the origin of eel rice was to put it between rice bowls and deliver it to the theater so that the kabayaki would not cool down.[2][3].The origin of eel rice by Imasuke Okubo wasIbarakiRyugasakiIt is inUshikunuma.

However, in 'Masama no Katsura' (1857) by Aonido Toho, there is a description that when the author was a child, eel rice bowls were sold at a back row house in Fukiya-cho (a town next to Sakai-cho). It is known from past documents that there were people who had similar devices before Okubo[2].

There are many stories about the changes in cooking methods, and one theory isEdo PeriodThe kabayaki was ground-grilled with sauce,Meiji EraThen, the steaming method was adopted during the baking process, and the steaming technique was established in the Taisho period.Then, when the kabayaki was sandwiched between the rice, it would be double-steamed.[2]That.

On the other hand, in the early days of eel bowls, it was common to place the grilled eel between two pieces of rice to keep it warm and put it on top of the rice. It was easy to fall apart, and gradually it became just a eel on top of rice.Against thisKansaiHowever, since the eel is not steamed in advance, the meat does not fall apart, and as a result, the style of sandwiching it between rice has remained to this day.[4] There is also a theory.

In the Meiji period, eel rice was also called eel bowl (eel bowl), and soon it was abbreviated to eel bowl (udon), and the name became established.Furthermore, when eel came to be served in jubako, it was called unaju, and it came to surpass the popularity of eel rice bowl because it looked better than eel rice bowl.[2].

Homogeneous/similar dishes


The eel bowl is鰻飯It is also called (unagimeshi, manmeshi).Describes the manners and customs of the late Edo periodMorishada Manuscriptdescribes that it was commonly called 'mabushi' in Kyoto and Osaka, and simply 'donburi' as an abbreviation for 'eel bowl rice' in Edo.[5].


KinkiThen, about the eel bowl,Viper"[6], Sometimes the characters such as `` mamushi '' are applied.There is a theory that the etymology is a corrupted form of eel rice (manmeshi), a theory that it came from 'mabushi', which is rice covered with eel and sauce, and a theory that 'mamushi' (meal steamed) means steamed eel sandwiched between rice. There is a theory that it originated from ' or 'mamushi (steamed between meals)'.Not a bowl or jubakoOhitsuIn the Kinki region,hitsumushi,Chukyo regionThen.HitsumabushiIs called.snake OfMamushiAlthough it has nothing to do with (viper), there is also a folklore that it is derived from this.


TablewareAsHeavy boxIf you useEel(Unagijyu, abbreviated as Unajyu).The only difference from Unadon is the container, but at restaurants that serve both Unadon and Unadonju, the amount of eel is generally larger than Unadon, and it is positioned as a high-end menu with liver soup and small bowls.[7].

Unadon and unaju have ranks such as 'top' and 'special', but this is only a difference in the amount of eel, and the quality is basically the same.[8].This is because eels are usually supplied from only one place, and when eels from different production areas are used, it is noted as such.

There is also a theory that unaju means 'eel layered' in which rice and eel kabayaki are layered alternately from the bottom, 'rice', 'eel', 'rice', and 'eel'.
