The Nara Food Festival 2017

  The Nara Food Festival is a food event that was started in 2009.
  It was launched with the objective of promoting food ingredients produced in Nara Prefecture
  and fostering exchanges between restaurant chefs and producers.
  This year will be the ninth year of the event. In 2016, 255,000 people gathered at the event’s
  two venues, Nara Park and Umami Hill Park, and the event is now recognized as one of the
  largest food events in Nara Prefecture. First rate chefs from famous restaurants
  —including some with Michelin stars—use their unique skills and ideas to prepare foods
  for visitors to taste and rediscover the appeal of food ingredients from Nara.
  This year’s theme is “connections.”
  As such, the event will be held in the hope that importance will be given to connections,
  as chefs and producers, chefs and consumers, and producers and consumers all engage
  in direct exchanges with each other.
  We are looking forward to see you at “C’festa”!
