JAPAN Food Festivals September Meguro Sanma Matsuri, Tokyo
September marks the start of the Sanma (Pacific Saury) season in Japan. To welcome the bountiful Sanma catches, the locals give out over 6,000 fresh Sanmas every year on the first Sunday of September! Get ready for what’s possibly going to be the longest line you’ve ever stood in. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes, bringing along an umbrella, and lots of water. As always, get there early!
