Harumatsuri Japanese Spring Food Festival

When: Sun., April 9, 11 a.m.-3 p.m. 2017

Enjoy delicious and traditional teriyaki and sushi dishes in celebration of the arrival of spring. This weekend, the Spokane Buddhist Temple hosts its 27th Annual Harumatsuri Japanese Spring Food Festival. This local version of the time-honored celebration, which traditionally included rituals to ensure a plentiful crop in the coming growing seasons, also offers a tofu-and-vegetable dinner option. Desserts include authentic butter mochi and chex arare; the latter is a sweet, baked sesame-seed snack. The event allows for online pre-ordering as well as takeout options.

Sun, April 9 from 11 am-3 pm • Food from $5-$12/dish • Spokane Buddhist Temple • 927 S. Perry • 534-7954 • bit.ly/2odRrmE
