Tokyo Dome will open its doors to the prefectures of Japan who will be showing off their food and culture to the crowds. With mountains of speciality food to try and lots of unusual treats, you can experience the amazing variety of flavours and produce Japan has to offer. There will also be areas dedicated to popular dishes like ramen and sake as well as a craft-beer area in case you’re looking for something specific.
Festivals will be recreated in front of you from across the country, including the Hirosaki Neputa festival (7th – 10th), the famous Aomori Nebuta festival (11th – 15th) as well as the Akita Kanto Matsuri (12th – 15th)! Special festival nights will take place on the 7th, 8th, 9th and 13th on which all festivals will be shown in succession. There will also be dance performances which you can participate in on the 12th and a stamp rally where you can collect stamps for the amount of Ikemen you eat and use them to enter into a lottery for prizes. Ladies Day will be held on the evening of the 11th and means a free gift and evening tickets reduced to 1000yen from 6pm.
Tickets can be bought on the door for 1600yen or in advance for 1400 yen for the weekends, with afternoon tickets costing 1100 yen. Weekday tickets are reduced to 1300, so it’s a slightly cheaper way to get your travelling in or find those dishes you’ve been craving from holidays past!
Please be aware that the closing hours will vary on two specific days:
January 10th: 10am – 7pm
January 15th: 10am – 6pm
