Japan Expo & Matsuri Festival, Sydney 2012
December 15, 2012
We sat among others attending today’s Japan Expo and Summer Matsuri at Tumbalong Park Darling Harbour, watching the performances on stage, as well has having lunch, sitting on the grass. Lots of takoyaki (Osaka squid balls, also available in ebiyaki prawn and kaniyaki crab) brought to us by Colotako, well known on Sydney’s north side , plus gyoza, fish cakes and macha ice cream.
Stellar performances by Sydney’s Soran Dance Group (a combo of traditional dance and aerobics) and the Sydney branch of Hokkai Ahondara-kai (based in Sapporo, Hokkaido) as well as the dynamic and exuberant Ryukyu Matsuri Daiko from Okinawa.
