Picture in your mind the usual selection of Japanese yatai and festival foods, like karaage, tama sen, JUMBO hot dogs, “kakigori” shaved ice. Now throw all that out, because this is not that. The Yatai Festival at Osaka Castle is a very large outdoor festival that offers a wide variety of gourmet foods and drinks to sample via booths, or “yatai” which will line the walk in the “Taiyo-no-hiroba” area of Osaka Castle. Bring your friends and family.
