Venue: Hasshoku Center When: Jan 11th - Jan 13th 2021 , 10:00am - 5:00pm

Hachinohe's Hasshoku Center is a popular venue year round - it's one of Japan's largest indoor markets, and contains a wide variety of locally sourced foods. It's also home to the annual Hasshoku Ramen Festival which is heading into its third year.

The event showcases a range of different ramen varieties from stores across Japan, and some of the restaurants participating include Ramen Butahiro from Kokubunji in Tokyo, Kokumin Shokudo from Sapporo, and Kobushi Ramen from Kyoto. There will also be Hachinohe restaurants serving up ramen if you'd prefer to try something with local origins. Prices have not yet been released for 2020, but at the 2019 event each bowl of ramen was 600 yen.

Getting there

The Hasshoku Ramen Festival takes place at the Hasshoku Center in Hachinohe, Aomori Prefecture.

The venue is approximately 10 minutes drive from the Hachinohe Interchange on the Hachinohe Expressway.

Via Public Transportation

From Hachinohe Station (served by the Tohoku Shinkansen, JR Hachinohe Line, and Aoimori Railway Line), take East Exit number four, and board the 100 yen local bus. Alight at the Hasshoku Center stop.

Japan dwelling expat, living in and loving this beautiful country. Tokyo was my home for several years, but I'm now enjoying the countryside life in Niigata. Currently at 44 of 47 prefectures visited - with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out!

I do wish they would have smaller servings so you could try more items. Or I guess it's best to go with someone so you could share!

That, madame, is a most excellent point. Someone will be reading this and watch, they'll try it for next year's festival.
