Everyone’s favourite Japanese street food such as Takoyaki, Baby Castella, Okonomiyaki and soft serve ice cream is expected to be at the event. For the matured attendees, yes, there’s Japanese Sake too hehe. I’m guessing Yakisoba would make it’s appearancealong with lots of Dangos (Japanese dumplings) variety. These are just my wishes though! Hopefully, the venue wouldn’t mark the cost of these munchies too high.
