If you don’t have time or money to go to all those far flung regional festivals, this is the event for you. Furusato Matsuri Tokyo, promises to collect all the unique entertainment, best local delicacies and finest beverages and hand them to you in a place completely devoid of quaint local charm – Tokyo Dome City.
Stroll from Hokkaido to Okinawa in a matter of minutes and sample everything from scallops to a manju filled with a slab of otoro tuna. If you’re still put off by the venue, just think of the booze – more than 100 varieties including regional craft beers.
The operating hours and pricing of this event are as confusing as hell. On various days it finishes at 6,7,8 and 9pm. If you go on a weekday you can also save on the entrance—1,100yen against the 1,600 yen ticket price on the weekend.
