Ekiben Tournament

11:00am
Free

There’s no train in sight at this ekiben tournament near Shinagawa.

Ekiben, the combination of eki (station) and bento (lunchbox), are highly popular in Japan and are usually eaten on a long train journey to somewhere far off and exciting. But this time, the ekiben are making the journey from all over Japan to Tokyo.

There will be 40 kinds of ekiben set up on Nakanobu Slip Road. Prices start at ¥880 and go up to ¥2,280 for the premium bento (specialty beef tongue, anyone?).

Sales start from 11 a.m. and it is sure to get crowded, but if you are into regional bento or ekiben, this is the place to be.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
