Department stores in Japan frequently have food festivals on their top floor.  Gourmet food sellers from different parts of Japan have stalls where you can sample (for a price!) food from different regions of Japan.  My husband is a gourmet and loves these food festivals



This is the sign for the food fair.  “Zenkoku umai mono matsuri.”

“All of Japan Delicious Food Festival”


We got this very expensive crab for lunch.   There goes the budget.


Dessert delicacies from Hokkaido.  I noticed that most food sellers were from Hokkaido.   Not suprising–Hokkaido has an excellent reputation for food.


Oh gosh, I don’t know what this is!  I am not a foodie and don’t know much about Japanese food.  Wish I knew more!
