Whether it’s a family day out or a first date, a market can be the best way to spend a warm summer day surrounded by lush green nature and live music. Just a short walk from Koma Station in Saitama, Alishan Organic Center’s 12th annual Food Carnival is a place you can sit back, relax and immerse yourself in the fresh air. Numerous workshops are planned throughout the day from a Bean to Bar workshop to an easy, guided hike on Hiwada mountain. You can also enjoy a bite to eat at the authentic food and farmers market. This year we celebrate with the theme of “Beans” and introduce various vegetarian dishes brought to you fresh from our kitchen.
