Join the Tokyo Harvest Festival in Roppongi

Autumn is the season of the harvest in Japan!

We have traditional customs to thank for a successful harvest on the autumn. As harvest of each year becomes important stock for the country to survive, it is said the customs started about 1,500 year ago. November 23 is designated as a national holiday called “Labor Thanksgiving Day". Autumn is the season for healthy appetites. A time to indulge in the bounty of the harvest and we should nourish ourselves eating delicious foods! Japanese people will enjoy tasting seasonal foods because everything is good in its season and they taste the best. As this is proven by dietetic research, I strongly recommend you should check seasonal foods and try them during your stay in Japan.

The great harvest festival will be held again this year to deliver our respect and gratitude to farmers and fishers across the country! Seasonal taste treats are getting together throughout Japan and waiting for you to explore Japanese food culture for 2 days on November 8 and 9. Approximately 30,000 people joined the event last year and one of our Senpai writers, Ruthie is serving as an ambassador this year.
