Upcoming culinary events in Tokyo?
I'll be visiting Tokyo from September 10th-21st and was wondering if anyone was aware (or knows where I could find information on) any upcoming culinary events.
For instance, there was the Tokyo Grand Maison Charity Curry event back in June that saw three high-end French restaurants serve up curry-inspired creations.
Or Hotel New Otani's Pierre Herme and Satsuki dessert buffet.
Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
The Great Japan Beer Festival (dai nihon biiru matsuri) September 13-15 in Yokohama is always worth the trip from Tokyo.
I'm going to Tokyo around the same time (September 16 - 20) and have been looking for the same. The only thing I found is that (and I'm not sure if this is even accurate) since the Grand Sumo tournament will be then, the Chankonabe or "sumo cuisine" restaurants in the area all have specials.
It doesn't seem that interesting to me, to be honest, but thought I'd share.
