Koenji Awa-Odori

Koenji Awa Odori 2-CMYK

Since its birth in 1957, Koenji Awaodori has justly established itself as one of Tokyo’s most energetic summertime spectacles. The awa-odori dance is said to trace back to Tokushima in Shikoku, where in 1586 the party loving daimyo (Japanese feudal lords) triggered dancing in the streets. Whatever the credibility of the tale, the bursting passion of Koenji Awa-odori has swelled to over 10,000 dancers and one million spectators, so get there before the action kicks off at 5pm for the best spots.
