Just back from the Oo-Matsuri of Fujimae Jinjya (Oo mean Big, Matsuri is somewhat like a festival.)
The Matsuri has been going on for two days but I didn’t really noticed it. Just found out about the matsuri on my way to my Part-time work place.
Reached the Matsuri place.
Reached the matsuri at around 6.30 p.m.(Yes, it is still bright out there.) Then we take a tour around the selling places and games places. Then we decided what to eat. I go there with my friends. So we decided to divide up the foods to save on money and can try more type of foods.
First tried out the Jyaga Bata- which you saw on Aria the Animation when Ai-chan first visited Neo-Venetia. Jyaga Bata- mean Butter Potatoes in English. (Jyaga Imo = Potatoes, Bata- = Butter).
The shooting games’ corner.
Also spotted this corner which often see on Animes or games which you can play shooting game with the air-gun and then win prizes. Didn’t tried it since it’s expensive and the prizes doesn’t inpressed me…
Saw this little kid carryinng the BIG SODA CAN.
Yes, Goldfish catching is a Must Have at a Matsuri!
Feel very happy when first saw this things. But then started to considering about how troublesome it is to take care of those fishes….. Decided not to catch them….
Goldfish Catching is called 金魚すくい(Kingyo Sukui. Kingyo=goldfish, Sukui= saving) which mean (saving the goldfish?金魚を救いこと？ *correct me if i’m wrong.)
Bought the Jyaga Bata- and are currently eating them. It seemed simple but really tasty. ^^
Also tried out the たこ焼き(Takoyaki which mean Fried Octopus Ball). This is my favourite japanese food. ^^ 400 yen for 8 balls.
The Takoyaki Stall. ^^
The stall which selling Okonomiyaki.
The Okonomiyaki stall is the most famous stall around this festival since the Okonomiyaki is really BIG and CHEAP. 400 yen too but the size is really big!
As you can see from the board, 特大 which mean Extra Big!
Yes! Big and tasty.
冷やしラムネ(Hiyashi Ramune which mean Cold Lemonade water.)
Cost 200 yen. It’s just like Soda Water. ^^ The can is quite beautifull. I bought it back to my room. Maybe plant some plants on it later?
イカ焼き (Smoked Squid). Tasted really great!
I also tried to do the 水ヨヨ釣り. Successfully Fished 2 Yoyo and gave one to my friend. After all the eating and drinking session. I take some time to do some chit chat with my friends. Then decided to go back. ^^” 疲れた
