Koiwa Awaodori – Nagisaren

Posted in Japanese Traditions, People, Places by tokyobling on July 8, 2015

Some more photos from the rainy but exceedingly well danced Koiwa Awaodori in eastern Tokyo last weekend. For being such a young festival they have managed to talk an awful lot of very good teams into dancing not least one of my favorites, the famous Nagisaren. I wonder how many times I will manage to catch them this season?

    Amazing pictures! I went recently the first time to Asia, but I definitely want to explore more. Japan is on my list now!

      Thank you! Oh Zuhai! When I was last there the place was a tiny little town only half paved…! Absolutely not a single foreigner apart from myself. (^-^)

        Yes, it changed a lot! It’s crazy how fast the cities grow in China.
