Gaijin Gourmet! Eating Healthy at a Japanese Festival (Matsuri)!

Welcome once again to another edition of the Gaijin Gourmet - It's our first "Travel Edition"!

Any child who is that happy all the time has just got to win, right?)
It is about the fourteenth time he has won one of the big prizes at a raffle or bingo in the last four years. We always win. We have come to expect to win. In fact, if we don't win (at least a trinket), it has come to seem strange to me.
