On the final weekend of October every year, there's a big food festival held close to Hamamatsu Castle Park. There are stands serving hot meals and selling locally produced foods like cookies, jams and tea, and stages with a wide range of different performances. I saw live calligraphy, two troupes of taiko drummers, volleyball players, and if I'd stayed around I'd have seen a play about Tokugawa Ieyasu's daughters.

I came to Japan from Manchester, England in summer 2003, and have travelled a lot since then, around Japan and in Asia. When I`m not working I write satire at www.iothern.blogspot.com and perform stand-up comedy in and around Tokyo. Check my youtube channel `CunningPunster` for a taste.
