Yesterday I went to the Yakitori festa in Kurume, Fukuoka. 

Kurume has 8 Yakitori restaurants for every 10000 residents, it is #1 in Japan.

Yakitori started from food carts. 

When I think of yakitori, it means chicken to me. 

But in Kurume, yakitori is made with pork, beef, seafood, and vegetables etc including chicken.

There are many variations.

 They put those into bamboo sticks and grill them over coals.

Yakitori is yummy.

This festa held every year.

But you can eat Yakitori all over Japan.
