Montreal's first-ever Japan Week is underway from June 7 to 13, though the city's celebration of all things Japanese will be quite different this year because of COVID-19.
Instead of holding the annual festival at a public park in the Mile End, organizer YATAI MTL is offering a food tour and online programming.
But don't worry because Montrealers will still be able to enjoy amazing deals on Japanese cuisine, products, and services by following a route of restaurants and shops through several neighbourhoods of the city.
Plus, there is a "mini market" at 51, rue Sherbrooke O. from Thursday to Sunday, 12 p.m. to 8 p.m.
"You are lucky, my dear Montrealers, because there are plenty of delicious and AUTHENTIC Japanese foods to discover and re-discover in your city!" stated festival ambassador Kuniko Fujita in a news release.
"Come on, accompany me throughout the week and become specialists in Japanese cuisine. To your health, KAMPAÏ."
