Japan Cider Cup 2025

Experience Japan's largest cider event in Tokyo

Venue: Tokyo Tama Mirai Messe When: Mid Apr 2025

Billed as Japan's largest international cider event, the Japan Cider Cup was originally launched in 2022 and it brings together both domestic and international cider producers at the Tokyo Tama Mirai Messe convention center. Visitors to the event can compare and contrast a variety of cider types to determine a favorite, who will then be crowned the Cider Cup champion.

Entry to the event itself is free, but drink sampling is done via a ticket system which can be arranged at the venue. If you find a cider you particularly like, you can also buy direct from the vendors while you're there.

Getting there

Tokyo Tama Mirai Messe is located just two minutes on foot from Keio-Hachioji Station on the Keio Line, or five minutes on foot from Hachioji Station on the JR Chuo Main Line, Hachiko Line, and Yokohama Line. Visitors are advised to utilize public transportation wherever possible as parking is limited.

Thank you for posting this and mentioning our Japan Cider Cup! We had a fantastic turn out last year and are expecting bigger and better this year. The highlight of this year’s cup is we have nine cideries from the US Pacific Northwest who will be participating, a very unique chance to try a whole bunch of ciders not available in Japan. for details!
