Tokyo Mushikui Festival

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
If your favourite foods include ants, beetles and cockroaches, this one's for you. Returning for its fourth edition, the Tokyo Mushikui Festival ('mushikui', for the benefit of the uninitiated, literally translates as 'insect eating') offers a forum for the capital's small community of bug munchers. Shoichi Uchiyama, Japan's foremost expert in the world of creepy-crawly cuisine, will be on hand to judge a selection of dishes prepared by budding insect chefs, while popular bug blogger Mereco Mereyama is also due to make an appearance.
