Satisfy your inner foodie at "Tokyo Tokyo Delicious Museum" festival, a new food festival dedicated to celebrating and promoting Tokyo's outstanding cuisine. This spring 2022 festival will be held in Ariake, Koto-ku, Tokyo, over three days from Friday 20 to Sunday 22 May 2022.

This is the first year this new type of food festival will be held. In addition to booths from famous Tokyo-based Michelin-listed restaurants, the festival will also feature a wide variety of washoku (traditional Japanese cuisine), world cuisine, and special products from all over Japan.

Five world-class, Tokyo-based Michelin-listed restaurants will be attending!

In the 2022 edition of the world-famous gourmet guidebook, the Michelin Guide, Tokyo restaurants won a total of 203 stars, coming in first place by a wide margin against Paris, which was awarded 109 stars. With 229 Bib Gourmands, which are inexpensive and highly recommended restaurants, Tokyo has made a name for itself around the world as a city of gastronomy.

At the “Tokyo Tokyo Delicious Museum” festival, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy fine Tokyo cuisine. One such highlight is the “Best Restaurants in Tokyo” booths in the Stone & Light Plaza, where carefully-selected Tokyo restaurants will gather.

There will be five restaurants in total attending:

  • “Simplicité” (Sarugakucho, Shibuya City), a French restaurant where you can enjoy fish-centered courses
  • “REQUINQUER” (Shirokanedai, Minato City), a popular small restaurant that offers authentic French cuisine
  • "CHARCUT” (Toranomon, Minato City), a bistro which specializes in charcuterie, processed meat projects such as pâté and salami
  • “Äta” (Sarugakucho, Shibuya City), a French bistro featuring a variety seafood and fresh herbs
  • “Lien” (Ikejiri, Setagaya City), where the chef-owner, who studied in Paris and Tokyo, will entertain you with delicate works that are full of nature's blessings

Michelin-listed restaurants are difficult to find at food festivals, so this is a rare opportunity to taste the highest quality of food. While these restaurants alone could be enough to satisfy you, do not overlook the many other booths at the “Tokyo Tokyo Delicious Museum” festival!

Experience the charm of Japanese food, and try out a variety of dishes!

Is it just me or is Koto-ku developing a reputation for multicultural cuisine?

Michelin-listed restaurants, vegetarian, Halal? It looks like everyone will be satisfied with the variety offered. I hope more festivals are this forward-thinking.
