Aomori Fair at Uwajimaya Beaverton store in Beaverton, OR. March 2014
Portland is known for one of the best food culture in the US.

Portlander are willing to spend money for good food. We loved the city. Local Taiko performer Takohachi performed for us, and they did Nebuta music, and we all jumped and danced!
