The Hokkaido Gourmet Fair is one of Japan's annual popular events, and it usually takes place twice a year, in spring and autumn.

Unfortunately, the event got canceled last year to prevent the pandemic from spreading. Because of that, many people are even more excited about this spring lineup and special menus.

The event is taking place at the Keio Department Store’s 7th floor, in Shinjuku, and it features a total of 69 stores, each with limited-time dishes and delicious flavors unique to the Hokkaido Prefecture.

This year, the event also has a spring selection of take-out Bentos perfect for those who want to enjoy Hokkaido’s cuisine but prefer eating at home in a safer environment.
