Editorial Review of Ginza Holiday Festival

Date: August 13-15, 2010

Cost: $5 ($4 for students and seniors)

Organizer: Midwest Buddhist Temple

What to expect: Japanese arts and entertainment dominate this fest, featuring demonstrations on everything from pottery making and hula dancing to martial arts and Taiko drumming. There will also be a ton of authentic cuisine, including udon, edamame and kintoki (shaved ice flavored with sweet crushed beans).

Why to go: The Waza. Four master crafts-persons came from Tokyo exclusively for this event; all you have to do is head to their outdoor booths daily to see 300 years of Edo craft come alive. Also, Yoko Noge's Japanesque makes an appearance at 8 p.m. on Saturday.
