After successful Craft Gyoza Fes events in Tokyo and Osaka earlier this year, the food-based fun heads to Saitama Prefecture for six days this October. Fourteen types of gyoza from different parts of Japan will be available to try at the event, including the likes of beef cutlet gyoza served with rich miso butter from Hokkaido, spiny lobster gyoza from Tokyo, and lemon gyoza from Kyoto.

Admission to the event itself is free, but each serving of gyoza at the respective stores is ¥ 700 – so bring cash (or electronic money cards such as Pasmo or Suica) and come hungry! The vendor menu can be scoped out ahead of your visit here.

Getting there

The Craft Gyoza Fes takes place at Saitama Shintoshin Keyaki Hiroba, which is located under 10 minutes on foot from Saitama Shintoshin Station (Tōhoku Main Line). For those who opt to drive, paid parking lots are available around the venue.
