First time in Tokyo! Ueno de Panda Spring Festival 2023 will be held! A large collection of over 50 Chinese food stalls!

Gachi Chinese 18 stores! Chinese New Year from Ueno, Tokyo, the town of pandas and culture!

The Ueno de Panda Spring Festival 2023 Executive Committee (Taito-ku, Tokyo) will hold the “Ueno de Panda Spring Festival 2023” for three days from January 20 to January 22 (Sun) at the fountain square in Ueno Park. I will.

Cities like Nagoya and Yokohama have Lunar New Year events, but Tokyo doesn't have anything famous! In order to change the current situation, the venue's local "Ueno Chuodori Shopping Association", media company for China "Chugoku Denshi Co., Ltd." The company matchbox and others have gathered to develop the "Spring Festival" as a new winter specialty event in Tokyo.
On the day of the event, we will prepare various contents such as stage contents that will liven up the festival, a cultural introduction corner, and a Chinese street food festival. More than 30 booths will be developed in total.

■ Great collection of food stalls from Greater China! Recreate the Chinese New Year food stall eating tour in Ueno.

Food stalls are one of the pleasures of the Greater China region, and during the Lunar New Year, temporary stalls are set up in squares in some areas, creating a lively atmosphere. This time, the food stalls of the Lunar New Year are reproduced in Ueno Park Fountain Square. From skewers to grilled steamed noodles to sweets, we have prepared "taste of street food" from all over China. We have 400 seats and alcohol, so please enjoy the Chinese New Year to the fullest!

■ Celebrate the Chinese New Year with 11 regional dishes

The Spring Festival (Chinese New Year) is the most important holiday in China. In China, South Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, and other parts of Asia, the period before and after this is a long holiday, and billions of people celebrate the arrival of the New Year at festivals throughout the country. We have collected a wide range of Chinese cuisine. Since Sichuan cuisine is abundant in Japan and it is the home of street food stall culture, Sichuan is a little more common, but we have participants from 11 regions.
