Kagoshima prefecture in the southern island of Kyushu is famous for its shochu, meat, and Satsuma-age deep-fried fish cakes, among much more. Thursday, February 9th to Tuesday, February 21st, Ikebukuro Tobu is hosting a Kagoshima food fair on the 8th floor.
Highlights include the tabekurabe bento (photo above) with three types of meat: kurobuta (pork), Satsuma chicken, and wagyu. There is also an eat-in area with miso ramen topped with grilled pork. The event also includes shochu – Japan’s distilled spirit, often made from sweet potato in Kagoshima.
* Note that the event closes at 5 p.m. on February 15th and on the 21st.
