Hungry diners are feasting on seafood at a festival in Tokyo’s central Shibuya district. A highlight of the event is marine produce from around Japan, including oysters from quake-hit Noto Peninsula. The Sakana and Japan Festival 2024 kicked off at Yoyogi Park on Thursday. Vendors from across the country have opened around 80 booths, with menus offering shellfish, tuna and crab.

Among them are oyster farmers from the Noto Peninsula and they plan to serve about 12,000 oysters during the four-day event until Sunday. The event also aims to promote seafood from Fukushima Prefecture, to support its reconstruction from the 2011 disaster and nuclear accident.
