Meguro Sanma Matsuri

10:00am – 2:00pm
Free

Does the prospect of free fish get you excited? If the answer is yes, head down to Meguro Station on the JR Yamanote Line and the Mita and Namboku Subway Lines for the annual Meguro Sanma Festival from 10am on the first Sunday of September.

About 7,000 grilled Sanma (pacific saury) will be given away to mark the beginning of the season. You’ll have to wait in perhaps the longest queue you have ever seen, but presumably it’s worth it! The fish will be sourced from the tsunami-affected port of Miyako in Iwate Prefecture.
