Not Sure About This :: People of Japan #7

He is thinking "I wish I were at home playing Pokemon"

The title I gave this photo refers to the boy's expression, not my feelings on festivals, I assure you. Japanese festivals are always a joy to experience and take photos of. For one thing, it is one of the few times people wear more traditional clothes. Also, the atmosphere is always fun: everyone is having a great time, there is Japanese junk food everywhere, the air is full of music and laughter. I wish they were more often!

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

See my footnote at the end of the post. Some may call it street food, but it is unhealthy and nutritionally empty, so I call it junk food.

I disagree that okonomiyaki is unhealthy, it contains a lot of cabbage, meat or seafood (proteins), yamaimo, ginger, sometimes another vegetables. It has nutrients. Yakisoba also has vegetables and meat, it is more unhealthy, because it is huge portion of frying noodles, but nutritionally empty?

I would love to see more japanese matsuri. I was on hanami last year, it was great :)
