Showa Boston had their Obon festival this weekend. It was really lovely, especially since a day later Hurricane Irene blew in, leaving pretty much nothing to do but sit around in the dark.
We had some azuki kakigori (小豆かき氷 red beans over chipped ice) and watched some wonderful dancing, listened to great music, - it was a good time!
Just before we had dinner at Genkiya sushi, one of my favorite Japanese places in Boston. Had the kushiyaki (串焼き grilled seafood) and the cucumber summer maki!
