Honcho, Koganei-shi, Tokyo | (The plaza outside the North Exit of JR Musashi Koganei Station, the rotary outside the South Exit of the station, and the north end of Koganei-Kaido Avenue)
2022-10-1 - 2022-10-2

Note: The 2022 installment of this event has already taken place.

Every year, the Koganei Awa-odori Dance Competition marks summer season in Koganei. Many dance troupes from Koganei and across Japan participate to show off their best dance moves. From orthodox traditional styles to New Wave, many variations of the Awa-odori dance are performed here. Enjoy the bustling energy of the crowds, feel the vibrations of the taiko drums, and hear bells and enthusiastic voices resounding through the streets. In order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, this year only local dance troupes will participate, and there will not be any official refreshment stalls on-site.
