It’s a state of gustatory glory at Showa Kinen Park in late May and early June, with the annual Manpaku food festival. Take advantage of the long spring evenings—or, hell, the long spring days—to head out and see the ten special sections: beef, deep fried, seafood, sweets, salads, and more. For the dairy-obsessed, 2018 is the debut of a cheese section. Cheese!

Once you’ve had enough to eat, check out the stage shows and beer garden, or just chill out in the tents until another amazing foodstuff catches your eye. Tents and marquees are set up, so inclement weather is no reason to stay home.

Entrance at the gate is ¥500 on weekdays and ¥800 on weekends; tickets in advance are ¥100 cheaper. Coupons for various areas are distributed after 17:00. Gates open at 10:30 and close at 21:00, except for the last day, on which the festival shuts down for another year at 18:00.
