Overview
More
Every week in May, in the midst of Japan's "Golden Week," a series of holidays in succession, Aoi-ku in Shizuoka holds the Samba Carnavalem. For two days, the entire town seems to transform into a South American city, in this, Shizuoka's largest Latin-culture inspired event. The best samba teams from throughout Japan congregate to show their stuff, and they parade around the center of town in vivid garb and put on vigorous and athletic performances of "bateria" (percussion troupes), generating a light and vigorous beat that will make you move your feet. Special beer gardens are also installed in town for the event. Over 100,000 people attend the event each year.
