I don't remember when it started, but the German traditional event of "Oktoberfest" has come to take place every autumn in some big cities in Japan. I supposed that the event was held only in big cities, such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Sapporo. However, it was held this autumn in my hometown, Matsuyama city. It was apparently its second year. This "Oktoberfest" is derived from Munich, and I was able to enjoy a variety of German beer with lots of kinds of sausages here in Matsuyama. I was so happy! I attended the event with my daughter, who had studied in Freiburg in Germany several years ago. She looked like she was remembering the nostalgic scenery of Freiburg.
