You’ll probably going to be craving for something sweet after lunching. No worries. You’ve got an array of authentic Japanese sweets like Matcha ice-cream, Nama Melon Soft Cream and Purin Dora, a rich custard pudding sandwiched between fluffy dorayaki, to choose from!

With over 20 food and drink booths and more than 40 types of snacks imported from Japan, it’ll be safe to assume that you and your little ones will be going home with bulging tummies.

But of course food is not all there is. Catch the breath-taking Awa-Odori, one of the most famous dance festival held in Japan during Obon, and watch in awe the impressive display as performers hoist lanterns hung on bamboo poles that rise up to above 12-metre.

Each kanto (lantern) hoisted up by a single performer to the sound of drums, fl­utes and chanting is a glorious sight to behold! What’s more, after the performance, you can even try your hand at hoisting a kanto.
