This past Sunday afternoon the Japanese Restaurant Association hosted the 10th annual Japanese Food Festival at the Kyoto Grand Hotel and Gardens in Little Tokyo. The event was a big draw for Japanese food and drink enthusiasts, and offered unlimited sushi,
saki, Japanese beer, soju, curry, tempura, ramen, and yakatori for the $50 admission, in addition to unique entertainment like a giant tuna cutting demonstration, a sushi eating contest, a sushi roll contest, and a sushi rolling demonstration.
