30 Things You Should Know and/or Will Love about Japan Series: # 21

#21 Yakitori - Food on Sticks
Our favorite food stall for Rokko Island Festivals & a cute monkey
Lola wants to wear this costume again this year.
Whether it's from a food stall at a festival or at a Yakitori restaurant, Japan has some of the best skewered food, ever.

While you're here, you'll definitely get to experience it at the (World Famous - just kidding) Halloween Festival on Rokko Island, we'll take you to a Yakatori restaurant, and I'm sure you'll have some while we're out and about in Nara or another touristy area.

The only thing I will warn you about is that while there are delicious grilled meats and vegetables and a variety of other things you can find skewered to eat for a reasonable price, there are also ones made from cartilage and other fibrous organs and animal bits, but don't let that discourage you from trying food while you are out and about!

Pickle on a Stick

Frozen Chocolate Covered Bananas don't really fall under the Yakatori category,
but she's cute and she's eating something on a stick ^_^
