Adapting to COVID-19 restrictions, Taste of Japan Festival is reimagined as a series of pop-up events from LA to OC. Pre-order your favorite Japanese dishes and pick-up from a specific location.
Taste of Japan is BACK, with delicious food and drinks celebrating Japanese cuisine and culture! Get a Taste of Japan with ryu senbei, bento boxes, and other delicious street foods from the island nation from eateries like Shin-Sen-Gumi (LA/OC), Hannosuke (LA), Kagura, Lagu Café (Irvine), Tanota Takoyaki (LA), and Drinking Buddy Japanese Artisan Snacks (Long Beach). The event is organized in partnership with Rocky Yoneyama, proprietor of Anaheim’s Okayama Kobo Bakery & Café, and the Bizen Beer Bar. Support local Southern Californian businesses while enjoying a fun, safe, experience of Japanese culture.
Here are the next events:
November 7, Saturday 12-4 pm Bizen Beer Bar in Anaheim
November 14, Saturday 4-7 pm Burger Daddy in Long Beach
