The annual Japan Festival Chicago was a great success!

The annual Japan Festival Chicago was a great success over the weekend on Sunday, 6/16. It brought the true feeling of a Japanese summer festival to big crowds at Millennium Park, with games such as kingyo-sukui (goldfish scooping), lines of booths with festival food like tornado potato (my favorite), traditional music and dancing, and the steamy summer sun. Being there to support the Chicago Japanese American Council for the second year in a row, it was great to see familiar faces, and I had a blast helping Mariko Kallister, Chicago’s master of handmade soba noodles. Catch it again next year for a taste of Japan!
