Summer is the season of festivals in Japan, and no we don't mean music festivals! We mean traditional Japanese festivals often in conjunction with shrines, temples and spiritual events!

An absolute abundance of stalls selling Japanese candy and snacks, it's literally a Japanese candy lovers heaven! We wish we could send you all these goodies in your Japanese candy boxes but for now we'll just have to look at all the tasty pictures!

10. Takoyaki – Takoyaki is a popular street food from Osaka, but you can always find Takoyaki at festivals across Japan! It consists of octopus meat cooked in batter and topped with sauces like mayo and bonito flakes! Definitely one of our favourites at TokyoTreat as its so tasty!!

9. Wataame – Literally just your good ol' regular cotton candy, but sold in cute anime packaging!

8. Yakisoba – Fried noodle dish, often containing cabbage and meat. A delicious staple festival food you'll find hard to miss.

6. Ikayaki – Grilled marinated squid. Not for everyone but those who love seafood will be sure to enjoy.

5. Baby Castella – Simply tiny freshly made castella cakes often in the shape of cute mascots or characters like Doraemon!

4. Karaage – Another dish that's also common outside of festivals, just fried chicken on a stick for mess free eating!

3. Ringoame – Candy apples! Normally a Halloween treat for those outside of Japan, but here they're also a festival staple!

2. Kakigori – A definite must for the summer seasons! Shaved ice with flavoured syrup and other goodies.
