Tokyo Ramen Show 2018

Ramen is one of the most quintessential dishes of Japan that all tourists should try at least once—though I’m sure once won’t be enough. It’s a perfect harmony of noodles, soup, and other ingredients. And what better a place to try it than at the Tokyo Ramen Show, where you can try ramen from popular local shops from all over Japan in one stop! You can also try original ramen that you won’t be able to find anywhere else!

Osaka-Kishiwada Danjiri Matsuri

The Kishiwada Danjiri Matsuri was founded around 300 years ago from the people’s wishes to have “a bountiful grain harvest.” Many years have passed since its inception, and today this festival also serves to strengthen the bonds between the local people. During this festival, people carry danjiri (decorative portable shrines) around town while letting out powerful cries. Another fun thing to look out for are the plenty of gourmet food stalls set up during the festival.

For Ramen Full of Nira, Head for Osaka's Ten-Ten, Yu

There is a ramen restaurant I have loved for a long time.
Named Ten-Ten, Yu, it's a sister shop to Kyoto's famous flagship, Ten-Ten-Yu.
A lot of regular customers seem to come to this ramen shop every day to enjoy the free Nira Kimchi, a spicy Korean pickled cabbage with Chinese chives (Nira in Japanese).

Hokkaido’s 2018 HAKODATE GOURMET CIRCUS is a food event you won’t want to miss!

The HAKODATE GOURMET CIRCUS is the largest food event in Hakodate. Of course you’ll find an impressive array of local Hokkaido specialties, but also local specialties from other cities around Japan with close relations to Hakodate, as well as some food from other countries. This event is a great opportunity to enjoy fresh local seafood and regional cuisine from various areas.
