Uwajimaya’s 4th Ehime Fair brings local venders from the prefecture to share with their customers the opportunity to enjoy regional Japanese cuisine. Ehime Prefecture is located on the island of Shikoku, one of the four main islands of Japan. Surrounded by the Seto Inland Sea to the north and Shikoku Mountains to the south, Ehime is blessed with the best from both land and sea. The climate is warm and mild throughout the year making it the perfect environment for cultivating citrus. Ehime is the largest producer of citrus fruits in Japan and is known as the “Citrus Kingdom”. Uwajimaya’s founder Fujimatsu Moriguchi was from Ehime Prefecture and the store has a special relationship with the prefecture.
At the fair, you will enjoy Ehime’s local taste of citrus products, seafood, seafood snacks, mochi and more. On Saturday October 6th at 2 pm, as part of Ehime Fair, a tuna-filletting event will be held at the Seattle Uwajimaya.
