Taste of Tokyo is a mega food-focused festival taking place September 22nd to 24th at Ishi to Hikari no Hiroba (a space between Tokyo Big Sight and Kokusai Tenjijo Station) in Odaiba.
The event is organized by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government with the aim to share the cuisine and products of Tokyo’s agricultural, forestry and marine industries—plus cuisine and drinks from the rest of Japan and around the world.
What you can expect is a multitude of vendors serving up plenty of tasty treats. Gourmet, local, delicacy, sweet, savory, freshly prepared, and just about any other descriptive food word you can think of will be there—all hailing from the Tokyo area. Don’t forget to wash everything down with some Tokyo-brewed sake.
There will also be free cooking seminars (don’t forget to register); entertainment at various stages (including dance and music performances like zumba, a drum circle and more); plus demonstrations from the Japan Wheelchair Basketball Federation.
Entry is free. Dishes and drinks approx. ¥500 or less.
