Vegetarians beware: Japan’s ultimate meat-eating event is coming to Tokyo.
Nikufes is held all over Japan throughout the year. Naturally, Tokyo is probably the easiest to get to for our lovely readers. Shops from Japan and overseas serve meat in all of its delicious forms. Think kebabs, hot dogs, steak, roast pork, xiaolongbao, and more. Is your mouth watering yet? Shops specializing in sweets and beer will also be there, so you’ll have the full smorgasbord right in front of you.
Entry to the event is free, but of course, you need money to pay for all that delicious food. There are 3 payment methods: meal tickets, electronic money or cash. Meal tickets cost 700 yen each, cannot be refunded and can be bought at Loppi machines. Electronic money refers to cards like your Suica and Pasmo, and is the easiest option – just remember to top up beforehand as you can’t do it there. Last but not least, cash – this can only be used at the official kitchen and drinks areas, so not on meat!
