Taking place from 23 September til 3 October, Japan Week is set to be the biggest celebration of the unique Japanese food and drink culture that London has ever seen.
Restaurants and bars both big and small will be taking part to celebrate all that's great about the food and drink culture of Japan. We have Japanese restaurants such as Nobu Shoreditch, Sakagura and ROKA joining in the festivities as well as a host of non-Japanese (and fusion) eateries like Avenue, SUSHISAMBA and Gingerline.
Each restaurant will be offering exclusive dishes, sake pairings and so much more throughout the duration of the celebrations. New venues are being added every day, so keep your eyes peeled. Click here to view a list of the venues getting involved in #JapanWeek.
The sponsor of this year’s inaugural celebration is JFOODO – a division of the government responsible for promoting Japanese food and drink. JFOODO is especially keen on promoting sake and its pairing seafood potential with everything from sushi to fish and chips.
From National Katsu Curry Day on 27 September to World Sake Day on 1 October, the 10 days will be packed full of one-off events, limited-edition menus and exclusive discounts to help Londoners immerse themselves in Japanese gastronomy.
So, c'mon, get involved. Whether you're a restaurant wanting to supply some sake, or simply hungry for some excellent udon noodles – we invite you to #EscapeTheOrdinary with us this Japan Week.
