Minoo Summer Festival

This time of the year people enjoy summer festivals,both small and big,across Japan.

Today I walked for thirty minutes to the Ashihara Park where Minoo Festival was held. Minoo city is a residential area located in the northern part of Osaka Prefecture.

A lot of families and young people came to enjoy the stands and stage performances. Some of the girls wore pretty summer cotton kimono called yukata.

There were variety of food stalls and attractions. The most popular stand foods are yakisoba fried noodles, yakitori broiled chicken with sweet sauce and cotton cancy. And one of the most popular attractions was yo-yo scooping. My favorite one is goldfish scooping game.
