Beginning on the 1st of April this year, Nasushiobara’s ‘Makigari Fair’ revolves around food that has been locally hunted or sourced, with a variety of local establishments participating.

The origin of ‘makigari’ dates back to the Kamakura period (1185 – 1333CE), when the Shogun Minamoto-no-Yoritomo carried out a large-scale hunt across the whole of Nasunogahara. Ever since, the local Nasuno Makigari Festival takes place every October, during which a variety of unique, local speciality dishes are available.
In total, 34 different restaurants and accommodation facilities will be participating in the festival – each one offering their own unique take on the ‘makigari’ hot pot tradition, making it the perfect place for Japanese food-lovers to come and experience something truly authentic, along with many of Nasushiobara’s own specialities.

When: Sunday 1st April – Saturday 30th June 2018
Where: participating businesses within Nasushiobara City (restaurants & accommodation)
