Furusato Matsuri Tokyo 2022

Like food? Silly question, right, of course you like food! If you are looking for the opportunity to sample dishes from all over Japan but don’t have the time on your hands to be bouncing through all 47 prefectures and regions to seek out each individual plate (Or like me, you already have “been there, done that” and want to try that dish again from a long time ago) the “Furusato Matsuri” should definitely be on your list of things to do in the new year.

Furusato Matsuri Tokyo is held annually at the Tokyo Dome in early January. Roughly 400,000 people cycle through the venue, enjoying local food from throughout the country and small slices of regional culture as well, in the form of traditional performances and ceremony showcases.

This year, there will be special venues for ramen, sweets, craft beer, sake, and more to discover as some 300 companies, organizations, and bureaus set up shop under the dome. If you’re missing the summer matsuri fun of Japan (or you happen to only be here over the winter months), then this is the perfect time to get your ”washoi” on as we ring in the new year.
