For chili pepper lovers and heat fanatics everywhere, The Gekikara Gourmet Festival (激辛グルメ祭り) is the festival for you. Over the course of 38 days, and six separate rounds, restaurants from all over Tokyo will gather to offer their spiciest dishes (many of them specially concocted just for this event) to the people of Tokyo. You'll find a wide variety of cuisines at the event, with extremely spicy versions of both beloved standards (curry, Korean noodles, chicken wings) and slightly more surprising dishes (sushi, takoyaki, hot dogs.) Is your mouth just watering at the thought? Ours sure are!
(Each "round" features a handful of different restaurants, and these rounds last Friday to Wednesday. The festival is closed on Thursdays.)
