Eel in Asakusa - which of these restaurants?

ManhattanLawyer | Jun 17, 201502:16 PM     1

Thanks for all your help so far. I originally posted here - http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/1004355 - and have since secured our Tokyo reservations, which include my top choices of Sawada and Den as well as Dons de la Nature, Fuku, and Sukiyabashi Jiro (since we couldn't get into Saito).

I am now just putting together the last few pieces of our food itinerary.

We will be Asakusa midday and would like to try one of the classic eel restaurants. My research turned up the following 3:

Irokawa
Hatsuogawa
Maekawa

Are these all good, or does one stand out? Am I missing an obvious choice? I imagine these are not reservation restaurants, right?

Thanks so much! We leave in a few weeks.
