Hiroshima Food Festival 2024

A massive two-day eat-up. Stretch pants required.

Venue: Around Hiroshima Castle When: Late Oct 2024

Hiroshima holds a huge two-day food festival at the end of October every year.

Hiroshima loves to eat, and this gathering is a chance for the entire prefecture to get together and do just that. It is a food-lovers paradise, showcasing local food and drink from all 23 cities and towns across the prefecture.

The festival spreads out across the entire area of Chuo Park and the area surrounding Hiroshima Castle.

Okonomiyaki, yakisoba, local beef, oysters, yakitori, ramen, curry, ice cream, beer, sake, wine – anything that can be made at a food stall will be there.

Once you've taken in just about all you can, there is also a market, kagura dance performances, and musical acts to keep you entertained.

This is a fun, all-ages event that you don’t want to miss! Admission is free – you just pay for what you eat.
