Tokyo Yosakoi Festival will be held in Ikebukuro again this year, from October 9th to the 10th.

Yosakoi is a dance with a unique combination of traditional Japanese dance movements with modern music, such as Samba, Rock, hip hop, Flamenco and so on.

The dances are exquisitely choreographed and usually performed by large groups.

Originally Yosakoi started in Kōchi in 1954 and "yosakoi" means "Come at night" in the dialect of Tosa province.

In the Yosakoi Festival, people dance with naruko (bird clappers) in their hands.

This weekend Ikebukuro will be a hot spot for dancing...
