There was an interesting event named “でてきな祭” in Obata-Ryokuchi Park yesterday. “でてきな祭” sounds like “detekina-sai” and it means “Come out!”, and “祭” means a festival. I hadn’t known anything about the event until yesterday, but it seems to be held every year.
I heard music I didn’t know when I arrived at the park yesterday. I saw a DIY stage where two men were playing the musical instruments and a couple dancing. It seems that the musicians are from Hungary and the couple is a Rumanian man and his Japanese wife.
There are some stalls in the event: Korean, Rumanian, Peruvian, Indonesian, Pakistani, Indian, and Vietnamese food, Bangladeshi sari, Japanese sweets and used clothes. There are a few information booths as well, such as Egyptian and Swedish culture. Some people were teaching how to play the matouqin, which is a Mongolian musical instrument, to visitors.
I had Pakistani curry and rice, an Indian beans hamburger, Indonesian fried dumplings and sweet potato drink, Rumanian grilled chicken, and Peruvian chicken rice with Inca Cola. Did I eat too much? They were so good!
