Soy Lovin' It! Tofu Festival Might be Coming Back
We learned last year that the Tofu Festival had come to an end. Putting on the popular event demanded high resources with little financial gain. The Tokyo Service Center decided to end the annual event and concentrate on easier to do programs like the Springtime sake and food tasting event.
However, in an LA Times Daily Dish blog, Noelle Ito of the Service Center hinted towards the event's rebirth: "There are talks that someone [although she won't say who] might take an interest in putting on the festival."
Today, we learn, that someone is indeed planning on bringing it back late this fall, possibly the weekend after Thanksgiving, but they "haven't made a firm decision yet." By next week, a date should be set as well as the coming out of who these new tofu kings and queens are.
