Enjoy an evening of Owara-style dancing, from Toyama prefecture, at the beautiful Higashi Betsuin temple in Nagoya! Owara is a style of Bon dancing that is performed flowing through the streets, while thousands of paper lanterns decorate the doorways of local shops and houses. The members of Nagoya’s local folk dancing research collective, Kasuri no Kai, traveled to Toyama to learn the steps of this thoughtful, plaintive dance accompanied by shamisen, kokyu, and folk song.
