Utsunomiya City is known as the capital of gyoza (dumpling) and the natives are so proud of it that they organize a gyoza festival!!! It's taking place this weekend and in addition to yummy dumplings we also have free live jazz concerts.
We enjoyed the performance of a local band called All Around Orchestra (AAO). Here is their website (sorry Japanese only).
If you are curious what the hell is going on during a dumpling festival, please watch our YouTube video.
