In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Around 4,000 yosakoi naruko-odori dancers will gather from all over Japan to perform original routines rooted in tradition. The festival has paid venues in Odaiba and Marunouchi, a free YouTube livestream, and a paid 360° VR "seat" option. All these ways to view the festival make it a truly hybrid event.
This Tokyo festival is being run with sustainability and SDGs in mind. The organizers are seeking to create a new model for entertainment and events in a post-COVID era with measures to prevent the spread of infection. As part of that, bleachers for paying spectators will be set up near the Odaiba Statue of Liberty (Next to Daiba Station on the Yurikamome Line). As a bonus, these customers will also be allowed to watch from other outdoor venues.
In addition, there will be a follow-up festival held at the e-sports area at Tokyo Tower in January 2023.
Admission: Reserved seating: \3,500. Unreserved seating: \2,800.
Please check the official event website for the latest updates on opening dates and times, prices, and other information.
