Fukaya City, Saitama Prefecture, which boasts the top-class green onion planting area in Japan, has implemented the custom of giving “Fukaya green onions” to important people on November 23rd, Labor Thanksgiving Day, “Fukaya Negirai Day”. We are trying to improve the attractiveness and expand the consumption of “Fukaya Negi”.

Anniversary registration certificate
In 2018, Fukaya City started this new custom, “Fukaya Respect Day,” and this year marks the fifth year. In October 2020, the Japan Anniversary Association registered “Negirai no Hi” on November 23rd as an anniversary.
Since the beginning of this initiative, we have received support such as selling “green onion bundles” at supermarkets and agricultural direct sales stores in the city, and providing “green onion dishes” at restaurants in the city. At the “Shibusawa Eiichi no Sato Fukaya Expo” held at Tokyo Station in October last year, we also promoted “Negirai no Hi” and had approximately 3,500 visitors over the three days. In addition, since last year, the city has been holding a “Delivery Class: Negirai Day Class”, in which about 1,200 children from all 19 public elementary schools in the city participated and took home the “green onion bundles” that they made themselves. Thank you.
Implementation measures for this fiscal year
This year as well, we will be distributing the very popular “Negibun” and “Delivery class: Negirai day class”. In the city, “green onion bundles” are sold, “green onion dishes” are served, and various events related to “Fukaya green onions” are held.
