Music, food, local specialities and traditional crafts from Japan's chilled-out holiday destination of choice are on parade in Yoyogi Park at this free festival, which now returns for its sixth and most extensive edition so far. Head to the stage to catch performances by Okinawan artists, dancers and manzai comedians, or hit the food stall area for soba, spam, Orion beer and maybe even some mimigaa (pig's ears, natch).
Overall, it was fun and the live music was surprisingly catchy. I went earlier in the day to get a good look at things before it got too crowded. Which is par for the course when it comes to any kind of festa/matsuri that takes place in Yoyogi park. If you want to try any of the food or beers just be prepared to wait in line at a minimum 10 mins.
