Owara Kaze no Bon Festival




Yatsuo, a small and quiet mountain village, is decorated with thousands of paper lanterns as it brings much dancing and music, featuring the nostalgia of the traditional stringed instruments of Japan, shamisen, and Chinese fiddle, kokyuu.
Ecchu Owara has a 300-year-long history. Its song and dance is tender and elegant, and creates a graceful atmosphere with its melancholic melody. Dancers dressed in identical Happi coats (male) or Yukatas (female) wearing a straw hat dance from sloped street to street in the town that retains a remnant of the old days with its lattice-doors and old warehouses, which looks like a wave of straw hats passing before spectators. At the theater in the Yatsuo Elementary School playground, each Owara preservation society performs its dance.
