Well, it is that time again for dancers from far and wide to travel to Numazu for the traditional Yosakoi dance competition. The streets of Numazu, Shizuoka will be filled with dancers competing for the title of best Yosakoi performance.
Yosakoi is a traditional set of dance steps generally carried out in unison by a large group. However, these dances sequences are only a starting point for each dancing teams chorography and ultimately performances can vary greatly. Be sure to check out the college and highschool performances because their divergences are often the most creative.
The dancers’ costume grounds itself in various traditional festival garb of Japan and then deviates to many modern colourful extremes.
This festival is not one to miss.
Yosakoi! Yosakoi! Sore sore sore sore!
