Overview
More
The Yosakoi Soran Matsuri is a folk festival dance celebration adopted by Sapporo, in Hokkaido. Featuring troupes of up to 1,000 strong, the festival dancers are known for their brightly colored and outrageous costumes, extreme makeup, and vigorous routines, which they perform along the streets of Odori park throughout the day, and on a main stage in the evening. The dances, which combine traditional elements like the naruko clappers and the original "Soran Bushi" folk song, are often made more contemporary and vibrant, to attract and invigorate crowds.

The sensational music, costumes and dancing was done by people of all ages- and gives the festival a sense of real community pride and belonging; a thing lacking in our modern, sterile cities. How wonderful to see old people dance holding canes, revered and respected...More
