東京ハーヴェストとは? What's Tokyo Harvest

TOKYO HARVEST is Japan’s representative harvest festival, which is meant to show our respect and gratitude to farmers and fishers across the country.
At this event, through "100 Japanese Food Experiences", you can rediscover and enjoy the features, culture and history of every region of the country.
We are hoping this food festival will tell people from all over the world, not just in Tokyo or Japan, about how delicious Japan can be.

Concept

東京から、ラブレターを。

僕らは、生きている。
生きているから、お腹がすく。
お腹がすくと、美味しいものが、もっと美味しくなる。
今日も、あたりまえのようにテーブルにならぶ、
海の幸・大地の恵。
僕らの身体は、食べることでつくられている。
だけど、それをつくるために努力している
生産者さんの存在を僕らはつい忘れがちだ。
東京の真ん中から全国の生産者の方たちへ。
尊敬と、感謝をこめて。
ありがとうの言葉を届けよう。

Love Letter from TOKYO to Farmers and Fishers

We live, we get hungry.
We are what we eat.
The better food we eat, the more alive we feel.
Today, as always, we’ll eat the harvest of the land and the bounty from the sea.
However, we often take for granted those whose hard work provides it for us.
This festival is our way of saying thank you, from Tokyo, to all farmers and fishers in Japan.
