Yattokoren – Kawasaki Awaodori Festival

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on October 9, 2012

As a huge fan of Awaodori, I have a long list of favorite teams, and one of them is the Yattokoren, from Tokyo’s hip Shimokitazawa district. Yattokoren was on the first teams I followed actively and it is great fun to catch them a few times every year to check on their progress and the old and new members. They are overall a very good group with good dancers of all ages, but when I saw them last Saturday at the Kawasaki Awaodori Festival down in Kanagawa Prefecture I was truck by the exceedingly cool looking female drummer in the 11th photo, she spent most of the performance looking so utterly cool about herself I just had to get her picture! Yattokoren also has some very cool male drummers, cute kids and fantastic smiles. I just love this team! Sorry for the amount of photos in this post, 17 in all, I just had to include them all!
