This is how we can support our favorite restaurants! Buy support tickets and share yummy pics!

Due to the worldwide spread of coronavirus (Sars-CoV-2/COVID-19), our daily lives have changed dramatically. There is no one who isn’t affected in some way. This is also very true for restaurants. The Chiyoda Ward (Chiyoda City) in Tokyo has many delicious restaurants, including a lot of curry restaurants. Let’s support the gastronomy together and send them our love!

Let’s support our beloved curry restaurants!

To support curry restaurants – Chiyoda City really has A LOT of them –, you can currently purchase the so-called “Kanda Curry Grand Prix Curry Restaurant Support Tickets” at 45 curry restaurants. The tickets are worth 3,000 yen (500 yen x 6 tickets) and can be used to pay for eating at the restaurant and take-outs. Each time you buy a sheet of these tickets, you will get a cute tin badge as an extra!

Curry store support tickets come with a tin badge.

I bought the tickets at my favorite soup curry restaurant, called ‘Oodori’, also known as ‘Audrey’ (the Kanda Surugadai Branch). If you like curry and haven’t tried this soup curry, you definitely should!! The curry is excellent!

This is the ‘black soup’ curry with a meatball topping.
The ‘Ossi’ yogurt drink is a specialty of the restaurant.

Share photos on your social media accounts!

To support your favorite restaurants in Chiyoda City, just take some delicious photos of your meal (inside the restaurants, as a takeaway or as food delivery) and post them on your social media accounts.

This is the banner for the food pics sharing event #goshisouchiyoda

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #ごちそうちよだ (#gochisouchiyoda in English). The hashtag is a mixture of the word gochisou (meaning “delicious food” or “treat”) and “Chiyoda”. It sounds a bit like the Japanese phrase you say after finishing your meal: gochisoudama deshita (engl.: That was a treat!). Since Chiyoda City is sort of a food heaven, sharing the pictures is a great way to tell all your friends what they have been missing.

This is my #gochisouchiyoda post on Instagram.


When you use or copy&paste the Japanese hashtag, your post might get shared on the official website!
Just imagine how happy the restaurant owner and staff will be when they see your picture! So let’s give them some emotional support!

Please refer to the following link (Japanese) for more information about the hashtag event and even more support projects in Chiyoda City:
