Living in NYC – Visiting the Japan Fes.(t) on Broadway

It was shortly after arriving in NYC (so to speak in the pre-Trump era) when friendly neighbors suggested we go to the Japan Fes. (it is really Fes, not Fest!) on Broadway. Especially the Ramen contest should be fun, they said.

Happy about this information from people who have been here for quite some time we heeded their advice, although I am often rather reluctant when it comes to huge, packed gatherings. But I am also kind of a Japan fan and the weather was very nice.

So there were no excuses.

Broadway is one of the most frequented streets in NYC, at least between the 116th Street and the 92nd Street. So, many things were going on there all the time. We passed for example a Jazz orchestra before we found ourselves right in the middle of loads of food stands with delicious Japanese stuff – we had reached the Japan Fes.

Maybe I missed the point – and we missed the Ramen contest too – but I couldn’t find very much besides the food stands. Sure, we saw a few funny sushi pillows. Real pillows. You can see them here in the background.

That was fun. But I didn’t purchase one.

Do you see the Sushi pillows? No?

At the end we gave in to our curiosity and snatched some food off the last food stand.

It tasted interesting. Nothing to die for but decent. Afterwards we went to the lovely Riverside Park.
