Oden is a traditional Japanese one-pot dish made with a variety of ingredients, such as boiled egg, daikon radish, fish cakes, and konjac, all simmered in a flavorful dashi broth. It's a comforting, warming dish that's commonly enjoyed during the colder months, and it's often served at street stalls or convenience stores.
If you'd like to get your hands on some oden this spring, however, be sure to check out the Odawara Oden Summit. The two-day event is set to include oden types from around the country available for purchase, presenting a great opportunity to try a few and pick a favorite!
Please note that on the first day the event finishes at 5pm, but on the second day it wraps up at 4pm.
The event takes place at the Odawara Castle Ruins Park (Ninomaru Square). The venue can be accessed in 10 minutes on foot from Odawara Station, which is served by various lines including the Tōkaidō Shinkansen, the Tokaido Main Line and the Odakyu Odawara Line to name just a few.
