Koenji Hot Soup Festival

Things to do, Food and drink events
第一回 熱汁祭

February is usually the coldest month of winter in Tokyo, so the timing is perfect for this festival that lets you sip a wide variety of hot soups under the open sky. Taking place on the plaza just outside Koenji Station's north exit, it sees local restaurants team up with eateries from neighbouring Asagaya and Ogikubo to serve everything from Thai tom yum goong and gumbo soup to Mexican menudo, made with beef tripe in a spicy base, alongside a range of old-school nikomi. And with the Koenji Engei Matsuri for performing arts going on during the same weekend, making the trip should be well worth your while.
