Tohoku Food Festival at Takashimaya Nihonbashi

This weekend through Monday the 12th, stop by Takashimaya Nihonbashi’s 8th floor (large event space) for a special food festival featuring the food of the Tohoku region. My mother is from Yamagata so Tohoku holds a very special place in my heart. Shinji also works with many fishermen from Aomori to Iwate and Miyagi so many of the seafood producers from this region are treasured. Tohoku needs your support now more than ever.

Highlights include the awabi, ikura, and mekabu (in photo above) from Iwate, konnyaku balls from Yamagata, kamaboko from Miyagi, and much, much more.

Note that these events usually close early on the final day (Monday the 12th), most likely closing at 5 p.m. But call ahead to confirm.
