Many thanks to Kyle Mutrie for sending me details of this year’s Vegetarian Festival. I’m delighted to learn that, having relocated this year, it is a five minute walk from my house! Kyle himself will be performing a guitar solo from 10.30. And in addition to that, and all the food, there will be dancing, juggling, music of all genres and discussion (including a “Talk Show” with Green Action Japan’s Aileen Mioko Smith). Check the schedule for details of the day’s events and the shop list for info on the vegan food and goods available.
The event will take place, rain or shine, on Sunday October 9th from 10.00 am until 16.30. Entry is entirely free, however the organizers do ask that people bring their own eating utensils to reduce trash. Bukkoji Temple is south of Shijo and about five minutes walk east of Hankyu Karasuma station. Here is a map.
