When: Mid September Dates: 17 September - 18 September 2016 City: Nakatsu Website: Event Website (Japanese) Description: One of the best chances to sample one of Oita's most popular specialities - Karaage (fried chicken). With over 60 speciality shops from Nakatsu and Usa this is a great way to get your fried chicken fix. In past years a special, limited fried chicken ice-cream has also been available - however it sells out fast!
Karaage Festival (から揚げフェスティバル） - n October/November, a wide range of karaage shops all come together at Aeon Mall. This is a great chance to try many different varieties. The festival is wildly popular, so expect big crowds.
