Oct. 19 - 21 | The Largest Orange County Japan Fair Is Back in Costa Mesa!

One of my favorite events of the year is happening this weekend, The Orange County Japan Fair! I've been to this event since it ever started and have gone almost every year! (Check out my recap here) I just love Japanese culture and everything about it and it is just fun to get to try new food and check out merchandise and enjoy the performances.

The event is happening at the OC Fair in Costa Mesa and it just gets better and better every year. I haven't decided which day to go yet... but hope to run into y'all there! Check out more information below:
