The Midosuji Gourmet Festival Comes to a Close

After 10 weeks of preparation, the inaugural Midosuji Gourmet Festival was finally held just over a week ago.  Marked by rain on the first and second day, things did not start out as we would have hoped but with the weather clearing up for the finale on Sunday, roughly 8,500 people showed up to enjoy the various international cuisine and entertaining stage performances.

As you can see in the first picture above, even the mayor of Osaka, Kunio Hiramatsu, came out on Sunday to enjoy the event's festivities with the rest of the community.  Also pictured above are snapshots  of the beer on tap from the beverage tent and Texas BBQ sandwiches prepared by none other than Hide Kanai of Hiday's Texas BBQ.

If we would have had three days of picture perfect weather, who knows how many people would have attended the event.  Hopefully we can give it another go next year!
