Matsuri Festival: The culture of Japan

  • The Matsuri Festival is a annual gathering of people to celebrate Japanese culture. There is authentic food, drink, music, art, and clothing to be seen everywhere. Sadly, with this years festival, it was quite crowded. Being crowded is both good and bad. It is good because it is a popular festival to attend and meet people. The bad is it's crowded, it can unnerve people who can't take being in crowds, and it gets hot quickly.

    I had fun wandering around and looking at all the pretty kimnons and seeing the vast amount of cosplayers that came out to show their support for their love of Japan.  I ate Onigiri (stuffed Rice ball with meat and seaweed wrap) and a green powered red bean mochi. I didn't end up buying anything this year from any of the stalls but there was a mixture of tradition decorations, clothes, bonsai trees, and anime items to be able to buy.

    If you were ever interested in attending a festival like this, check your Facebook or even Google to find out if there is an annual festival near your area. They are indeed fun to attend but once again, beware of them being a crowded area and being okay with wading through a large amount of people.

     

    Until then, Ugeek On!
