Another Day with Deda





















Deda makes it to the Osamu Tezuka exhibit just in time! The exhibit heads back to Japan after Sunday.

Aki Matsu no Taiko
















"None for you (which is me)" Deda is eating a fish-shaped cake snake filled with red bean. Yaki-something or another.
















Okonomiyaki
















Lots of people dancing. This is the Japanese equivalent to line dancing except the walk around in a big circle and there is an inner ring of dancers you can watch so you're never out of sight of somebody who knows what they are doing.

Looks like you're having a blast! I'm so glad you made it to the Tezuka Osamu Exhibition in time.
Btw, that fish cake thing is called "takiyaki" and the fest is Aki Matsuri. ^^

Where did you get that okonomiyaki?!?! The only place I know of is the restaurant next to the Kino stationary store T_T It looks good...

you are talking about izumiya which IMO has fallen in its okonomiyaki quality. This was at Mifune Don which is upstairs in the Miyako side of the Japan Center next to the Seoul Garden.
