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.

東京六本木の収穫祭で、日本の秋の味を楽しむ!
【日本の収穫祭は、美味しい季節】
日本では、古くから五穀の収穫を祝う風習があります。その年の収穫物は国としてもそれからの一年を養う大切な蓄えとなることから、大事な行事として1500年前から始められたと伝えられています。今でも11月23日は勤労感謝の日として、国民の休日となっています。また、秋は食欲の秋というほど、たくさんの食物が実り、日本で一番美味しい季節です。日本では旬のものを食べる習慣がありますが、これは旬の食材が「美味しい」「体にいい」からです。栄養学的にも証明されている話ですので、是非日本に来たら旬の食べ物を食べてみて下さい。
