Polish Festival in Roppongi Hills – 2016

Tokyo is usually filled with gentle sun, pumpkins, jazz music, and festivals in late September and October. It is still warm so many people can enjoy various outdoor activities. One of them is the annual Polish Festival in Roppongi Hills.

It is not an event that you often hear about. However, people who like Polish culture and food never fail to visit. The next opportunity to eat Polish pierogies is not until April (in Nakameguro). That’s when Easter is celebrated. Here are some cute greeting cards and ceramic Easter eggs.

By the way, if you wish to visit an authentic Polish restaurant, there is one in Utsunomiya, Tochigi Prefecture. It is rather far from Tokyo but very close to Nikko.

At first I lined up together with other foreigners and Japanese people to get some Polish sweets.

After buying a dessert, I went for the main dish, bigos (sauerkraut and sausage) with bread.Polish Festival Roppongi Hills

By the time I had gotten my lunch together there were not tables available. I had to wait until the improvised eat-in space got less crowded. This is the downside to festivals in a such a limited space.

The Polish Festival is held in Oyane Plaza. This is more popular during the Yuletide, hosting the German-style Roppongi Hills Christmas Market.

There were many Polish ceramics, trinkets, traditional clothes, and even Polish honey called Chopin!
