Keihoku summer festival information

It's a summer festival season!

Do you know Bon dance? (Bon odori)

Bon odori is a traditional fork dance.

You could see it at the summer festival in the evening.

The dancers wear yukata(Kind of kimono). And they circle around the wooden tower and dance with local Bon songs.

You can join the dancing circle that is very fun.

You can get a lottery ticket and could get a prize by joining it.
