Spanish cuisine puts a focus on fresh, high-quality ingredients, and you'll often see seafood, olive oil, garlic, and spices incorporated into recipes. Sharing meals and socializing over food is an important part of the culture, with tapas being a popular way to sample different dishes.
The Paella and Tapas Festival at Tokyo's Hibiya Park is Japan's largest Spanish food festival, and the three-day event will see the best paella and tapas decided by visitors' votes.
There is no admission fee to attend the event, but do bring yen if you plan on doing some food sampling.
Hibiya Park is located just a minute on foot from Kasumigaseki Station's C3 Exit. The station is served by the Tokyo Metro's Chiyoda, Marunouchi, and Hibiya lines.
For those visiting by car, paid parking is available at the Times Hibiya lot – it's charged at a rate of 300 JPY per 30 minute increment.
