Alishan Food Carnival

Taiwanese Food Trip

Venue: Alishan When: Early Jun 2021
Notice: The dates for this event are not yet confirmed. This page will be updated once the official date(s) are announced by the event organizers. Please check the official event site for the latest info.

The Alishan Food Carnival continues to be an event where visitors can try out organic, vegetarian, and vegan dishes not normally served at the cafe and learn how to use Alishan ingredients to make healthier meals at home. This year's theme is Taiwan. All dishes concocted by Alishan staff will have connections to Taiwanese cuisine and culture and many of them will use Alishan's line of Taiwanese sauces and marinated vegetarian meats.

Like in previous years, Alishan hosts a blue sky market where you can buy seasonal fresh vegetables from local farmers, artisan bread from bakers who use natural yeast, and unique items made by local craft artists.

While you're at the event, enjoy a 15% discount on all Alishan products. The event will push through rain or shine.

Getting there

Alishan Organic Center is a 10 minute downhill walk from Koma Station along the Seibu Chichibu Line. Parking spaces will be limited and coming by train is recommended.

For Sherilyn Siy, Asia is home. Born in Hong Kong, Sherilyn spent time in the Philippines, China, and now lives in Japan. She speaks English, Filipino, Chinese (or putonghua), and Hokkien, her family's local dialect. Running is one of her favorite ways to explore Japan. She proudly finished the 2015 Tokyo Marathon -- her first ever full marathon -- in 4 hours and 37 minutes. She was absolutely psyched when she got selected again to run the new Tokyo Marathon route in 2018. She hopes to complete other races in Japan.

I've only visited Taiwan once (would love to re-visit!) but the food was phenomenal. This sounds like a great way to enjoy some of the cuisine here in Japan.
