Thirty-two festive nights of dancing

Venue: Gujo Hachiman When: Early Jul - Early Sep 2023

The Gujo dance festival started over 400 years ago and now it's known as one of the largest summer dance festivals in Japan.

The festival is held for a period of thirty-two nights from mid-July to the beginning of September. During the four days of Obon (an August festival commemorating one's ancestor), locals and tourists, regardless of skills, dance together in a big circle through the night until the morning.
