It is a perfect weekend event to enjoy with your partner, best friend, your child or parent!

Japanese Culinary Delights

KUCHIMATSURI is more than a popular Japanese food festival; it's a journey into the heart of Japanese culinary traditions.

Gifts are waiting for you!

After tasting all these Japanese delicacies, we could not send you home filled-stomach but empty-handed. Every guest will receive a set of tea bags including the brewing instructions, and a set of recipes for each wagashi, tsukemono and aemono dish you tasted in the event. So that you can share the amazing experience once again at home with your loved ones.
