Osaka Kitchenware Street Festival

10:00am – 5:00pm
Free

If you’re in the mood for some kitchen-based souvenirs for your trip to Japan – or need to fill up your kitchen here, then look no further. The Osaka Kitchenware street is holding their annual festival to display the best of their wares – but there’s more to it than pots and pans. Choose from the best Japanese knives, browse the myriad plastic food displays of everything from sushi to ice cream and buy classic pottery and other kitchen equipment.

There are chances to talk to the makers for details and advice on use and care, chances to make your own food models, decorate lanterns and make your own Takoyaki.  There are plenty of food stalls with the treats of Osaka on offer with sushi, tempura and fried chicken among others. One of the more unusual highlights is the chance to eat some of a giant Taiyaki so giant that it’s recognised by the Guinness Book of Records! The fish-shaped waffle will be handed out as samples to visitors during he day! Check the map here for the street’s location.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
