Hanshin Famous Ekiben and Delicious Food Festival

Ekiben from across the country in the one destination

Venue: Hanshin Umeda Main Store 8th Floor Event Hall When: Jan 24th - Jan 30th 2023

On long shinkansen journeys, one of the highlights is grabbing an ekiben to enjoy on the train – whether it's purchased from a vendor on the station platform or once you're aboard. Literally translating to railway bento, these boxed meals often present an opportunity to try popular regional cuisine from the area you're traveling in.

The Hanshin Famous Ekiben and Delicious Food Festival brings 250 kinds of ekiben to the one venue, including hard-to-get options like the ekiben served on the Two Stars 4047 train operating in Kyushu.

The wide variety of ekiben on offer means that there's something to cater to just about anyone's taste – conger eel, crab, oyster, and beef tongue ekiben are just some of the choices available.

Getting there

The event takes place at the Hanshin Umeda Main Store 8th Floor Event Hall, which can be accessed in just a minute on foot from Osaka-Umeda Station or Higashi-Umeda Station.
