Hiroshima Food Festival

October 26 - October 27

Free

Hundreds of stalls hawking every food product from every part of the prefecture around Hiroshima Castle and in Chuo-koen Park for two days. As I’m sure you know, Japanese people love nothing more than a bit of food tourism, so it can get pretty busy with thousands of people crammed between the tents pumping out mouth-watering smells and the castle moat. There are also boat rides around the castle, a big flea market as well as some live music and kagura performances on Saturday.

We recommend that vegetarians take a packed lunch.
