We went to the Bon Odori Festival held in Matshushita Stadium on Saturday (15 July 2006) and it was a huge party with lots of Japanese of course and locals too. When the focus of the festival is the traditional Bon Odori folk dance and Taiko (big drum) perfomance but at a corner there's food stalls that sells almost all the japanese snacks you can find but local food too. There's grill food, rice, noodles, pastry, deserts and beers. I was over joy but was refraining myself from only going for the rare bits so i took some okonomiyaki, squid teriyaki and sandwich made from japanese bread (it is the most delicious bread I ever tasted).
