This is an announcement from the IZUMO Multicultural Meshi Festa Executive Committee.

Foreigners from 37 countries and regions live in Izumo City, and the ratio of foreigners is high compared to other cities nationwide.

In order to make Izumo City a better place to live, we believe it is necessary to deepen our understanding of diversity.

We planned the IZUMO Multicultural Meshi Festa with the hope that Japanese and foreigners would be interested in each other’s cultures by interacting with each other through food.
At the IZUMO Multicultural Meshi Festa, vendors will create and sell new “multicultural meals” that combine ingredients and seasonings from multiple countries in a food festival format.

★What is Multicultural Meshi?

It is a general term for mixed culture cuisine that combines the food cultures of two or more countries or regions created with the basic spirit of understanding and respecting the food cultures of countries and regions different from one’s own and developing each other’s food cultures.
