Updated on 10 October
This year’s Taste of Tokyo was cancelled due to a very serious threat posed by Typhoon No 19 (aka Hagibis).
Taste of Tokyo (“Tokyo Ajiwai Festa” in Japanese) is a three-day fair, full of seasonal food and flavours from Tokyo.
The event highlights a wide range of dishes and products using ingredients produced in the metropolitan area, covering Tokyo’s nature-rich suburban cities and islands in the Pacific Ocean.
For added fun, the sixth edition in 2019 will bring in rugby-themed dishes to entice visitors – Japan is the 2019 host of the world rugby cup, to be held from 20 September through 2 November.
And the Taste of Tokyo is not just about food. It also features traditional crafts, outdoor movies, concerts and workshops to “Discover Tokyo, Enjoy Japan”
