Bacon Festival in Kofu, Japan?

Thinking about bringing the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival to Kofu, Japan sometime in the next 18 months.  The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival, , is the largest bacon festival based in Des Moines, Iowa.  Des Moines and Kofu are sister cities that was started via the Iowa Hog Lift in 1960.  The Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival would be a fun filled day of bacon, bacon inspired dishes, entertainment and other events.  We already do events in Reykjavik, Iceland, Keystone, Colorado and throughout Iowa.  Any help would be much appreciated. 

Thanks and OHHHH, BACON!
