The Setouchi region of Japan is packed full of natural beauty, and it also boasts an equally impressive cuisine. With the abundance of fresh seafood from the Seto Inland Sea, it's no wonder that Setouchi is famous for its seafood dishes, such as oysters, sea bream, and squid – and that's just the beginning of the foodie delights in the area.
The Setouchi Gourmet Festival takes place at Ueno Park, and it's a celebration of the culinary gems you can find in this part of the country. From Yamaguchi's kawara soba to Kobe bokkake from Hyogo, the event presents the chance to try a variety of regional cuisine in the heart of Tokyo.
Entry to the event itself is free, but bring yen if you plan on doing some food sampling.
The event takes place at Ueno Park's Fountain Square, which can be accessed in under 10 minutes on foot from JR Ueno Station's Park Exit.
