When thinking about curry, India and Southeast Asia comes to mind. However, what most people don’t know is that Japanese people LOVE curry. There even is a whole area in Tokyo dedicated to the spicy treat. And that’s “Kanda”!
With more than 400 curry restaurants, Kanda is often called “curry battlefield” or the “sanctuary of Japanese curry”.
But curry isn’t just simply curry. There are countless, endless variations, such as Japanese style curry rice, curry bread, curry udon, curry ramen, European style curry, Indian curry, Thai curry, Asian curry and so on!
From the end of August until the end of November every year, a “Stamp Rally” event takes place in the area surrounding Kanda. A huge number of participants eat at as many curry places as they can to collect stamps in order to win the title of “Kanda Curry Meister”.
In addition, at the “Kanda Curry Grand Prix” held in November, the most delicious curry restaurant in the area is chosen. It is the biggest curry festival in Japan where you can eat and compare various curries at reasonable prices. Don’t miss it!
But even if you can’t make it during curry season – that’s no problem!
The city of curry Kanda with its spicy and delicious scent is awaiting you all year round.
