Yakitori (Skewered Teriyaki Chicken) Stand
Or maybe I should call it "outdoor festival junk food?"
It's time for our crazy outdoor dance festival again, and I've been taking photos like all other crazy photographers. Why crazy? Oh, think about being a spectator of outdoor dance performances from around 12:30 to 21:30, either standing or sitting on the sidewalk and occasionally walking from one venue to another, when the temperature is somewhere around 35 - 36 degrees C in the daytime (could be higher on the blacktop), taking shots of the dancers. Well, actually not all amateur photographers stay that long... but I did yesterday. I know. I'm the craziest. Hahaha...
Yakisoba (stir-fried noodles)
Okonomiyaki (Savory pancakes) Stand
To be honest, I felt kind of embarrassed to take shots of the fair food at these stands, because at this festival, everyone is interested in the dance and dancers, not the fair junk staples (and they have nothing but "the staples" in this festival). I noticed a vendor looking at me like "Is this her first time to see food stands at a Japanese festival?" Oh well.
Anyway, I'll post the festival photos on my another blog when ready. :)
P.S. I take vitamin pills every day, so don't worry too much about my nutrition. ;)
O.K. Here let me add one more shot which best conveys the true spirit of this festival.
Now how about that? ;)
* I posted some photos from Yosakoi Festival here, if you're interested.
