Hiroshima Food Festival

October 28, 2017 - October 29, 2017

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 bring a packed lunch.

Saturday, October 29

  • Kagura performances on the Hiroshima Castle Stage at 10:00-11:10 and 17:00-20:00
  • Taiko drumming performance on the Hiroshima Castle Stage at 12:00-12:15
