Minami-Koshigaya Awa Odori Dance 南越谷阿波踊り


mk233-20090822_4030.jpg

A 30-40 min. train ride from central Tokyo is Shin-Koshigaya Station on the Tobu Isezaki Line (via Hanzomon/Hibiya subway line) and JR Minami-Koshigaya Station where one of the largest Awa Odori festivals in the Kanto region is held during a weekend in late Aug. It's unique for having numerous venues both outdoors and indoors where over 60 dance troupes performed. These photos were taken on Aug. 22, 2009. Also see my YouTube video here.
