Taste of Tokyo 2015

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government will be holding the Taste of Tokyo 2015, an event that aims to share the various attractions of Tokyo with those in Japan and the world as the city prepares to host the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. These attractions include the local agricultural, forestry, and marine products of Tokyo and cuisine made from such ingredients, and the traditional culture that has been passed down the ages. This year, the Taste of Tokyo will be expanded both in area and content, going beyond last year’s Marunouchi district to include Yurakucho and Hibiya, and also introducing many various attractions from throughout Japan.
