Manpaku Food Festival – Osaka October Events

Are you ready to EAT?! Well, get ready because the annual Manpaku food festival is coming to Osaka! The aptly named Manpaku, is a combination of the words manpuku, meaning ‘full stomach’ and hakurankai meaning ‘exhibition’. This food exhibition is the largest in Japan and will surely please any food lover. On offer, are a variety of international cuisines, Japanese popular staples, unique regional specialties and a wide selection of local beer to wash them all down with.
