Etchu Owara Kaze-no-Bon(To be held in 2023) 越中八尾 おわら風の盆

Enjoy the sad Owara Dance

The Etchu Owara has been handed down over more than 300 years in this village nestling between the mountains in the southwest part of Toyama City. Both a song and a dance, it is lyrical, refined and elegantly plaintive. Several thousand paper-covered lamp stands line the old-fashioned townscape of lattice-doored old wooden houses and storehouses, as men and women dressed in happi coats and yukatas dance through the hillside village, accompanied by shamisens, kokyus (traditional Japanese string instruments) and taiko drums. You will be enchanted by the calm dreamlike atmosphere. The street performance is held in each district.
