On october 19th (Saturday) from 11:00 to 20:00 and 20th (Sunday) from 11:00 to 19:00 everyone will be able to discover how extravagantly rich is our City of Shizuoka at 3rd Shizuoka Gourmet Kingdom Fest 2013!
It will be held in Aoi Ku behind (west entrance) the Shizuoka City Hall and all along the Aoba Street/Aoba Symbol Road!
Can you guess what is produced, caught and bred in our City?
See the list below (not exhaustive!):
-Sakura Ebi/Cherry Shrimps
-Vegetables (impossible to count)
-Wasabi (it was born in Shizuoka City!)
-Tuna (did you know that? Especially Albacore/Binnnaga Maguro, also nicknamed Shizuoka Tuna!)
-Hanpen (dark sardine paste cakes)
-Oranges and citruses
Frankly speaking I already know that to show all products of Shizuoka City would require a far bigger space, but I’m sure there will be enough to overwhelm you!
Local sake brewed in this city will be represented by the following breweries: Haginishiki, Suruga (Tonko), Eikun, Kanazawagawa (Shosetsu), Kumpai and Sanwa (Garyuubai)!
Naturally all the major Japanese beer companies will also be represented as guests as they know you will be thirsty on these two days! LOL
For more information call 090-6469-0597 (Japanese)
