Otsuka Awa Odori Dance 2009 大塚阿波おどり


ot258-20090826_5558.jpg

The 37th Otsuka Awa Odori folk dance festival was held on Aug. 26, 2009. About 15 awa odori dance troupes, mostly from Otsuka or Toshima Ward, paraded along a short course in front of Otsuka Station on the Yamanote Line in Tokyo. Despite being held for 37 years already, this awa odori is little known in Tokyo. Also see my YouTube video here.
