Meguro Sanma Matsuri

10:00am – 2:30pm
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.

This is part of the Meguro Citizens Festival.

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