Well, at the upcoming RWS Summer Matsuri Festival, you can have everything.

Happening from June 6-9, 2019 at level B1 of The Forum, Resorts World Sentosa (RWS), the festival will have lots of delicious Japanese food and drinks, free film screenings, as well as large-scale cultural performances.

You can also get your hands on RWS-exclusive snacks, specially imported from Japan for the festival.

Award-winning chefs from Japan will also be at the festival to whip up their famous rice bowls, such as the Oyakodon (Chicken and Egg Bowl), and Echizen Kani Donburi (Crab Rice Donburi).
