Walk a mile in Japan and you’ll come across another regional food specialty you just have to try. Running concurrently with the Fuji Shibazakura Festival, and situated at the same location, the Mt Fuji Delicious Food Festival will save your shoes by bringing all the delicious local dishes of Yamanashi into one great space.

There’s something for every palate at the Fuji Delicious Food Festival. If you are after a big bowl of hot noodles to line your ribs before an afternoon at the phlox, there’s soba, udon and ramen galore. Fujiyoshida Udon,* packed with firm noodles and crisp local cabbage, is a local favorite. Another excellent local dish, Fujinomiya Yakisoba, features a spicy broth that’s so popular it’s won awards at Japanese comfort-food competitions. Local spuds make for a stack of Mishima croquettes, crisp on the outside and velvety on the inside. For the adventurous, a Kumamoto Prefecture dish has come up north: black curry pasta, dyed pitch black and packed with umami by fragrant norikuro powder, features on the menu. Koshu chicken-giblet stew and Yoshida udon* are also available.

National favorites are also on offer: tempura soba, tororo soba, bean-paste buns, fried rice, steamed pork buns and dumplings are all waiting to warm you up. Sweet tooths can indulge themselves with raindrop cake, Fujiyama taiyaki, and mochi ice-cream.

Even if you’re not one for masses of cherry-pink shibazakura phlox, chances are you’ll want lunch, so if you’re near Fujisan or Motosu during the spring, head for this delicious festival.

*Note: some dishes may contain horsemeat. Ask if you’re not sure.
