Welcome to Japan Week! From March 19th – 21st, join us in the annual celebration of Japanese culture and cuisine in Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall. In honor of Grand Central Terminal’s centennial, Japan Week 2013 will be driven by the Japanese “on-the-go” lifestyle theme. Look forward to being introduced to the nuances of Japanese travel culture, including ekiben, or special train station bento containing regional dishes, and tachinomiya, standing bars featuring a range of sake and shochu. Entertainment includes cultural performances scheduled throughout the three days.
I was there at lunch time yesterday, so conditions to take pictures were not the best. It’s worth a visit, if you have the time.
I’ll showcase some of the food I found and bought in a later post.
