Ichou Festival Vendors

Besides beautiful gingko trees, there were many food vendors at the festival.

This is yaki soba, grilled noodles.

Another vendor.

More food. I am shocked that the chopsticks were stuck in the food like that. At a wake, chopsticks are placed upright in a bowl of rice that is set out for the person who died. My Japanese students were shocked when I did it years ago at a restaurant in Texas. I had rested them there to take a sip of tea. It was a big no-no.

And speaking of chopsticks. This little guy had cotton candy on a wooden chopstick. He was moving pretty fast so the picture was blurry.
