The Okome Matsuri, or Rice Festival, is being held at Yokohama’s Aka Renga Soko this weekend. My family and I went to it yesterday afternoon and enjoyed the sunny weather and plenty of food.
Aka Renga Soko is often used as the site of many events. Oktoberfest is also there. At the festival, there were several tents set up for food vendors, which were selling a large variety of interesting foods. I’d like to talk about what I ate, since everyone was there for the food.
In addition to the above food, we also had 6 kinds of rice. There were 12 types of rice available, but we chose 6. Honestly, I didn’t find much of a difference between them.
There was a lot of good food, and I enjoyed trying it. I filled up on rice and plenty of meats. It’s running until tomorrow (November 18), so if you want to check it out, I definitely recommend it.
