Letting kids know just where food comes from

Venue: Hibiya Park When: Nov 10th - Nov 11th 2019 ,  10:00am - 4:00pm

On the lookout for things to do with the kids while in Japan? Why not head down to Hibiya Park in central Tokyo for a free festival of fresh food and fun.

It may come as a surprise but many children don't actually know where food comes from. The annual Farmers and Kids Festa was set up to show them just where the foods they eat come from.

Set up as a festival, children are invited to participate in all manner of activities, from taste testing farm foods to riding farming equipment. There are even opportunities to play with the farm animals.

Now in its ninth year, the Farmers and Kids Festa may be just the place to spend an easy hour or so with the kids.

Getting there

Take the Hibiya subway line to Hibiya station and head out the A10 Exit, or take the Marunouchi or Chiyoda subway lines to Kasumigaseki station and head out from the A7 Exit. The park is a 2-minute walk away. With a JR pass, you can take the JR Yamanote Line to Yurakucho station, from where it's a 6-minute walk.

Sleiman, is this event good for families that do not speak Japanese at all?

Love this idea! Living in the countryside now we see this stuff first hand, but previously when living in the city my little ones wouldn't have known about how a lot of things are grown. Sounds like a great educational (and fun!) event.

Couldn't agree more! It's those essential life skills like learning how things are grown that truly are important to know about.
