Over 20 popular curry restaurants from across Japan will be present for the event, and the #1 curry will be selected among them by vote of those attending.
The participating restaurants will be divided into participating in the 1st and 2nd halves of the event, so you’ll be able to taste different restaurants’ curries even if you stop by during both halves of the event!
There will also be non-spicy children’s curry and a kids’ area, so those with children can enjoy the event too!
