38th Asakusa Samba Carnival 第38回 浅草サンバカーニバルパレードコンテスト

1-1-3 Asakusa, Taito City, Tokyo
2019-8-31

The largest samba carnival in Japan is a perfect finale to summer in Asakusa. This colorful parade and contest attracts samba dance teams from across Japan, with beautiful dancers in colorful, gorgeous costumes as the highlight.

Each team expresses its own unique theme through dancers' costumes, the team's float, and their dance. You can easily spot the lead dancer, known as the Rainha de Bateria (Queen of the Drums), by her sash. Also standing out from the rest of the team are the pair of dancers bearing the team flag.

Take the chance to enjoy this dynamic dance up close!
