Warafes 2019 “No meat, no life” | WARABI

October 6, 2019 @ 10:00 - 16:00


Waranchu Festival, or Warafes for short, is a relatively new annual food festival in Warabi. This year is only the third year of the festival. Despite that, last year there were more than 25,000 visitors to the one day festa in Warabi City Park.

Last year there were 25 food booths and the average price of food was 500 yen per dish. The festival’s catch phrase is “no meat, no life”, and it is mainly a meat festival. However, they have bubble tea and tofu donuts for non meat eaters!

There are a few shops at the festival too. And they have a good line up of stage performances including some vibrant samba dancers. There is kids dance acts as well and they have a rock-paper-scissors event for the kids too.

Access Warafes

The festival is held in Warabi City Park which is half way between Warabi and Nishi Kawaguchi stations.  It takes around 12 minutes on foot from both of these stations to the festival site.
