Gyoza is renowned as a staple food in Japan, and there are numerous regional variants from all corners of the country. The All Japan Gyoza Festival brings a host of these varieties together in the one spot, with gyoza from popular shops in the Tokai area, to offerings from cities famed for gyoza production such as Utsunomiya in Tochigi, and Hamamatsu in Shizuoka.

There will also be original gyoza available, which will incorporate locally-sourced ingredients from different prefectures.

Getting there

The All Japan Gyoza Festival takes place at Ai-chikyuhaku Kinen Koen (sometimes referred to as Moricoro Park).

By Public Transport:

If you're visiting the area via public transport, the closest stop is Ai-Chikyuhaku Kinen Koen Station, on the privately-owned Linimo Line. Due to the large number of visitors expected for the event, public transport is advised.

By Private Vehicle:

If you do opt to drive to the venue, there is parking available for 1800 cars, at a cost of 500 yen per vehicle.
