Summer is the season for festivals in Japan. Local festivals are held during the months of July, August, and September. People from the area usually gather for these festivals to enjoy food stands, games, dancing and music. Girls often wear yukatas. Of course there are major festivals throughout the year. On this page, I will introduce to you small local festivals.
TYPES OF GAMES
YOYO-BALL FISHING - try and scoop up a yoyo ball using a paper line and a hook
GOLDFISH SCOOPING - see how many gold fish you can scoop with a small net (becareful not to break it)
RAFFELS - pick a ticket and win a prize
TYPES OF FOOD STANDS
TAKOYAKI - octopus balls (I know it doesn`t sound good but don`t be a hater until you try one)
OKONOMIYAKI - Japanese vegetable pancakes
YAKISOBA - noodles
GRILLED SQUID - delicious, it is what it is
CORN DOGS - in Japan they call them American dogs
FRIED CHICKEN (KARAAGE)- breaded chicken, but tastes very different from chicken fingers
Of course there are many more types of food stands, and games, but the ones I mentioned are the most common ones. The games are mainly for kids or fun adults.
