Mito Kairakuen

 
Well, we found time to make it to Mito (we being fellow/rival Blogger Glen, a.k.a. ‘Tokyo Fox’ and myself). We may have gotten there a little early, as not too many ume blossoms were out yet, yet the festival itself was in full swing. There were many lovely young ladies in kimonos, waiting for people to pose with them and stalls selling all manner of snacks. You can see in the pictures some staple festival favourites in Japan- yakitori (chicken-kebabs with a soya-based sauce), mochi (pounded rice-cakes), ume soft-cream (soft ice-cream) and of course the ‘choco-bananas’ (bananas covered in chocolate and colourful sugar-sprinkles). If I get a chance I will return when the ume are really out there… but perhaps that’ll have to wait for another year, with so many other places to visit.
