16th Hibiya Park Marunouchi Ondo Bon-odori Dance Festival 第16回 日比谷公園 丸の内音頭大盆踊り大会

1-2 Hibiyakoen, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo
2018-8-24 - 2018-8-25

Every year, a huge crowd flocks to the urban bon-odori dance festival held in the oasis of Tokyo, Hibiya Park.

Employees of businesses in the Marunouchi-Hibiya area, foreigners, and local residents form circle upon circle around the fountain and dance to the “Marunouchi Ondo.”

This “Marunouchi Ondo,” meaning Marunouchi song, was composed in 1932 by Yaso Saijo and Shinpei Nakayama and is the base of the most famous bon-odori song, “Tokyo Ondo.”

Enjoy a summer in Japan at one of the biggest bon-odori festivals in Tokyo, where everyone is welcome.
