As we leave another lovely shrine we pass by rows of hot food vendors, all rolling, flipping, steaming and grilling various snacks and street food.
I’m not sure what they all are. Below the green and white lumps could be Dango, this is a Japanese dumpling and sweet made from mochiko (rice flour) or it could be mochi which is pounded sticky rice.
Below a vendor creates his next batch of Taiyaki – cute fish shaped cakes filled with custard, chocolate or cheese.
Various meat on sticks are next up in the little food tents. It must be a hot and sweaty job!
They could be a type of Yakitori – chicken skewers cooked in a savoury sauce or it could be grilled pork belly. Being a veggy means I am not great at meat identification!!
The meat below could quite possibly be little sparrows on sticks – quite upsetting for the other half who is a real bird lover.
As well as food there are some adorable little fabric creations up for grabs.
Here’s another look at the stall holder creating his little fishy shaped snacks.
