Naniwa Yodogawa Yatai

No festival in Japan, including fireworks, is complete without some tasty eats to enjoy along with the festivities. The line of Yatai, or temporary food stalls, at the Naniwa Yodogawa Fireworks Festival was impressive and though many of the Yatai offerings were similar, the sheer number of them made for an entertaining walk along the river shoulder-to-shoulder with the masses of people. The döner kebab was meaty goodness, the cheese chikuwa (nori flavor, also available in curry) was salty-fried heaven on a stick, the inexpensive tamago sembe is always a crunchy treat, and the mango magic snow was a cool, flavorful desert with a wonderful texture that no other icy confection can match.
