Niku Fes

11:00am – 9:00pm
Free

Choose from aged wagyu beef in a rich egg-yolk sauce to tender spare ribs or even Korean-style hot chicken with cheese fondue—this festival has enough meat to tempt even the most dedicated of vegetarians to the dark side for a day.

There will be craft beers to wash your dinner down with as well as a bubble tea area for an unusual palate cleanser. While you relax with your dumplings/burger/fried sirloin beef (or all three), you can enjoy the live music, yoga and dance performances on stage.

While entry is free meal tickets cost ¥700 and fast-pass tickets are available too. There are usually evening discounts for those who arrive after 7pm and deals for groups and students too but these are yet to be announced for 2019. Note that the park does have an entry fee of a few hundred yen but it’s a great place to explore.

This event used to take place at Showa Memorial Park in Tachikawa in autumn, but for the 2022 edition, the venue was shifted to Odaiba and the season to spring.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
