My friends and I took a quick peek at the 2nd annual Toronto Japanese Summer Festival, Matsuri, that was happening downtown on the summery day of July 27. The weather was really nice with a slight breeze and very, very sunny. There were a lot of stalls selling Japanese art, cutlery, dolls, and performances on stage too. Of course, there was also a line-up of food stalls featuring Japanese vendors like Fin Izakaya, Touhenboku, Kingyo, and more.
The line-ups at the peak hour of 12:30 pm were humongous so we ended up going elsewhere for actual food. We did pick up a Japanese barley iced tea though that was refreshing for this hot summer day!
Overall, I felt like there wasn’t too much to look at other than the food. The line-up of food vendors was definitely impressive though! 🙂
