Foreign Friday

Street vendor
Autumn Festival
Misawa, Japan
August 1979
Carts like the one in the photo were common in Misawa. This one offered a selection of sweet-bean paste cones to the crowd gathered for the festival parade. The vendors also sold flowers door to door from the carts.

  1. Bean paste doesn't really sound tasty to my ear, but I'm sure it is a delicious treat.

  2. Bean paste cones. Hmmm... The one little seems to be enjoying it, so I'll try to keep an open mind!

  3. I just saw bean paste in the dessert basket on "Chopped", and thought that was really strange. It is amazing what different cultures can do with food items we think don't fit into our ordinary eating list.
