Eat Local Purin from Around Japan at Purin Festival 2018

13.April.2018 | FOOD / SPOT

To celebrate 6 years since DiverCity Tokyo Plaza opened its doors, the Gotochi Purin Fes is returning bigger and better this year and will run from April 26 to May 6. The event was held last year and was a massive success, bringing in lots and lots of people hungry for purin.


Last year’s purin festival proved more popular than expected, with a whopping 30,000+ purin sold. This year marks the 2nd run of the event and will house over 50 varities of pudding all the way from Hokkaido up in the north down to Okinawa.

The products on sale have been carefully selected by the Japan Gourmet Entertainment Company who have tried well over 2,000 individual purin to date and are constantly on the lookout for the best purin across each region of Japan. High quality purin that aren’t even sold at department stores or events will also make an appearance. If you’re a purin lover, you won’t be able to resist this event.


A collaborative campaign is also being held with Niku Fes (‘Meat Festival’) and will take place at an allocated area in Odaiba from April 27 to May 6. Those who present their receipts totalling over ¥2,000 (including tax) at the general information desk on the third floor of DiverCity Tokyo will receive an exchange voucher for rice at Niku Fes. 100 vouchers are available each day on a first-come, first-served basis. In addition, a 6-year anniversary present campaign will take place from April 21 to May 6. Those who spend ¥1,000 or more (including tax) at a shop will receive 1 stamp. Collect 5 stamps to enter a raffle draw to win a ¥100,000 travel ticket. 5 stamps gets you one turn in the raffle.
