After successful turnouts in Tokyo, Osaka, and Saitama previously, the Craft Gyoza Festival is making its way to Hiroshima Gate Park Plaza this spring. Various types of gyoza will be on offer at the event, including wagyu beef filled gyoza from Saga Prefecture, and bite-sized circular gyoza from Hakata in Fukuoka Prefecture. The full lineup of vendors will be released on the official event website closer to the start date.
Admission to the event itself is free, but do bring yen if you plan on trying a few of the gyoza types available. Electronic money cards such as Pasmo and Suica will also be accepted as a method of payment.
If you plan on attending, please note that the event start time is 10 am on weekends, but this is shortened slightly to 11 am on weekdays.
The Hiroshima Gate Park Plaza is located just a minute on foot from the Hiroshima Electric Railway's Atomic Bomb Dome stop.
