July- Japanese Street Food

No summer is complete in Japan without attending a matsuri (festival). While dressing up in yukata, enjoying fireworks, and watching parades all make for an exciting time, visiting the various food stalls selling savory and sweet street cuisine is an experience one should not miss out on.

With summer celebrations, neighborhood cookouts, and outdoor activities enticing people to heat up their grills, why not try your hand at making some classic Japanese street staples? There are so many options, from yakitori chicken skewers to miso butter corn-on-the-cob to yaki onigiri (grilled rice balls). You're sure to find something you and your taste testers will enjoy. Happy grilling!
