Tsukiji Autumn Festival 2021

9:00am – 9:00pm
Free

The themes of this festival are ‘eat’, ‘drink’ and ‘enjoy’ and while you could argue that these are the themes of 99% of festivals in Japan, the location of this festival makes it a bit more enticing. With the slow move of Tsukiji market finally taking place, this festival will be all the more spirited and promises even more events than usual.

There will be workshops from Tsukiji craftsmen offered on a first-come first-serve basis between 9am and 2pm at the studio. Classes on offer include how to sharpen knives, how to cut bonito and how to cut fish. There will be plenty of festival guides so be sure to ask one for the next class details when you arrive.

For all the delicious fish you can eat, there will be a BBQ event where fresh stall food will be cooked fresh as well as a limited number of shopping vouchers so you can stock up on the freshest fish in Tokyo.
