JAFF is short for Japan Food Festival, a month long celebration in collaboration with JETRO and Japan Centre where we offer an insight into locally produced food from all over Japan.
Kanagawa prefecture is located in the central area of Japan, just west of Tokyo. It is most well known outside of Japan for the capital city, Yokohama, as well as where Commodore Matthew Perry arrived with his treaty to force Japan to open up to foreign trade in 1854. Because of this, Kanagawa has a large foreign influence in the food and culture and even a ramen musuem in Yokohama where you can see the history of the humble noodle.
