Man Cooking Takoyaki

The man was cooking Takoyaki in the precinct of Himonya Hachimangu

I heard that it was the day of the Himonya Hachimangu Shrine festival and crawled towards it with my camera in hand. The closer I got to the shrine, the more people I saw. When I arrived at the shrine grounds, there were many food stalls set up along the normally deserted approach to the shrine, with many people walking in between them. Until I visited there, I thought the festival at Himonya Hachimangu Shrine was a local festival, so it must be held quietly, but it turned out to be much bigger than I had expected.

Of course, games such as shooting games and goldfish scooping are fun, but what I am interested in is the food. The food that I buy and eat at a festival is more delicious than any other food. Moreover, I feel that the variety of food sold at fairgrounds has increased compared to the past. There are more foods on sale that I would never have seen when I was a child. For example, I didn't even know about dondurma (Turkish ice cream) in the past, but there are stalls that sell it at this festival.

As I was pondering what to eat, I came to a stall selling takoyaki (octopus dumplings). There were griddles with dimples in the front of the stall, each with a piece of dough in it. And the man was just putting the octopus into the dimples.
