BON-ODORI is a dancing festival whick is held during OBON.
This festival is held by each local community here and there in this season – so each festival isn’t so big.
A turret is built in the middle of an open space. On the turret, Japanese traditional instruments are played, then dancers who wear YUKATA(浴衣) – Japanese traditional clothes, make a circle and dance.
Anyone can participate in the dance.
Around the dancing space, many stalls are opened. They sell snacks and beverages, then some of them provide play such as a lottery to get toys, quoits, shooting and goldfish-scooping. So kids like BON-ODORI, too.
