So, the festival…

There were certainly a lot of people this year. Mostly children.

As usual, there were stage shows (sword, dance, music, etc), calligraphy / origami demonstrations, kimono try-ons, and food, but trying to get anywhere near anything was near impossible.

The line to get to the food stands were insanely long. As in, across the park long. There were more foods available than usual. There was the  junk food stand, a takoyaki (round balls of pancake with octopus bits in the center) stand, and a yaki-niku / yakisoba (grilled meat / noodle) stand. When we arrived, mom got on line to buy our lunches, but after twenty minutes of not moving, she grabbed some pastry and teas from the junk food stand.

Maybe next year…
