If you’re one of the brave souls who has decided to eschew a diet of dead animal or perhaps if you’re even a little veggie-curious, you should head down to the Tokyo Veggie Food Festa in Yoyogi Park. Held in front of NHK Hall, the festival runs on both Saturday and Sunday and features approximately 100 food booths. The name of the festival is perhaps a little misleading – there’s none of that ovo-lacto-pesco-pollo-semi-flexitarian stuff – this is vegan food. Don’t be discouraged though – within the food court there will be well known macrobiotic cafes, raw food stalls, organic vegetable sellers and fair trade products.
The festival runs from 10am to 5:00pm on both the 17th and 18th. Closest stations are Harajuku/Meijijingu-mae on the JR and Tokyo Metro Chiyoda and Fukutoshin Lines and also Yoyogikoen Station on the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line.
