It is that time of year again, my all-time favorite gourmet food fair at Nihonbashi Takashimaya. It is also very popular with the customers so I suggest coming early in the day as the event gets very crowded.
Takashimaya brings in the top restaurants and food purveyors from around the country twice a year for an amazing gourmet food fair, Aji Hyakusen, on the 8th floor of the Nihonbashi flagship store. It is at the event that I have been introduced to delicious mirin aged three years from Gifu, nutty sesame oil from Kyoto, and sublime pickles from Kyoto’s Murakami shop (see photo above).
The event runs from Wednesday, October 26th to Tuesday, November 1st. The last day the event closes at 6 p.m.
