Itadakimasu – Canberra Nara Foodie Weekend

The Festival will not run in its usual format this year due to COVID-19 public health restrictions. While we won’t be holding an event at Lennox Park, we are encouraging Canberrans to support local businesses by enjoying delicious Japanese dishes at Itadakimasu – Canberra Nara Foodie Weekend – on 22-25 October.

Itadakimasu means “Let’s eat!” in Japanese. Over 20 participating restaurants and eateries are offering a range of experiences from fine dining degustation to sashimi takeaway, warming miso or refreshing green tea ice cream. Make a booking for the Itadakimasu weekend, or visit participating restaurants in store to collect some tempting takeaways!
