A lively celebration of Okinawan performing arts, the 18th annual Shinjuku Eisa Festival brings the grooves of Japan’s island culture to one of Tokyo’s most vibrant districts. Originally performed by young people during bon festivals to honor the spirits of their ancestors, the eisa dance is a major part of Okinawan folk tradition. With a large line up of performance groups, drummers, food vendors and an expected one million attendees, the festival is one of the most famous summer events in the city.
