Now through Monday, January 9th at Shinjuku Odakyu on the 11th floor is the Akita-ken to Michinoku Bussanten food fair of products from Akita and Tohoku.
Highlights include the Nihonkai no Sachi donburi posted above from Aomori, seafood on the rice bowl include salmon, ikura, uni, and hotate. Also look for bouzushi or presed sushi of saba from Hachinohe port in Aomori.
From Aomori you’ll also find this Tsuyu Yakisoba from Kumakichi Ramen at the eat-in section.
I also like the nama wakame (fresh wakame) from Sanriku in Iwate. From Akita do look out for the jizake.
The event runs 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, except for on Monday when it closes at 7:00 p.m.
Shinjuku Odakyu is located at Shinjuku station at the Nishi-Guchi. See my list of Tokyo’s top ten depachika here.
