“ At meat festival TOKYO 2018 you can try the most popular
23 meat dishes from all over the country.
We would like to recommend you our three most popular store."

Every year there is a constant queue at
"Drinkable Hamburger Takadanobaba Store."
This luxury hamburger is prepared from 100% Japanese black breed cattle
which is in Japan very popular.
Twice grind meat is overflowing with delicious gravy juices.
The same texture of this hamburger cannot be tasted anywhere else.
Some people standing in a line smake happy faces just ithinkin about it★!

The next recommended store is "Cheese Cheers Cafe Shibuya" which is
popular mainly by cheese lovers.
Last year the store exhibit at meat festival for the first time and
the queue of people in front of their store was constant.
Therefore this year it is expected that the store will have
a lot of attention as well.
The popular menu is thick "Raclette CCC Cheese Meat Hamburger".

Minced patty with plenty of gravy and exquisite cheese sauce which
creates topping of this popular hamburger.
Make sure you will try it otherwise you will regret later!

Our last recommendation is "Fried Chicken called Karage".
This one is popular by adults as well as by children.

Did you know that Nakatsu city at Oita prefecture is famous
for deep-fried chicken meal?
Big production of chicken at poultry farm was flourishing, therefore
Nakatsu city has developed into "Karage Sacred Ground".

The store representatives came all the way from Kyushu
just to participate at this meat festival.

This Kyushu chicken is pickled for a whole day in fermented tartare sauce.
The delicious taste of tartare sauce penetrates into Karage.

festival area. Payment is available cash or electronic way.
Moreover, if using electronic "ID" you don`t even need to purchase

4. What is caricature!?
Keep a memory of your smiling family!

Well if you came all the way here with your family,
how about to have some memory of your family that
you could even display at home?
Let`s visit next place which will fulfill such a need!

“Lovely couple  coming from Malaysia"


"The Caricature Japan Odaiba Venus Fort Store" can be found
in front of "Nittori" store.
The store has many caricature works on display!
The artist can draw your look and character on a piece of paper.
Isn`t is amazing! The caricature comes originally from Italy!
Exaggerated illustrations of unique figures can  be often seen
in a political column of an overseas newspapers.


"Store manager Mrs. Kobayashi is a very cheerful person and will explain
all the details in a pleasant manner."

The store manager Mrs. Kobayashi looks more on overall energy and
character of the person instead of just focusing on each parts
such as eyes, nose or mouth and try to sketch it on the paper.
Also by incorporating your memories or episodes into picture,
she can create a caricature masterpiece that will express you.
In order to do that, she requires just 15 to 20 minutes.

She can draw caricature even just from selfie photos
therefore you can just pass her the data and she can draw the picture
while you are going for a short walk or while you do some shopping♪.
