Do you like the beach? Do you like or want to experience Japanese summer festivals? Then the Morito no hama, bon dance competition/Festival is the best place to be this summer.
You can enjoy great grilled and barbecue dishes on the beach side as well as participate in the festival events. Definitely a fun filled experience with great food, great people and great dancing. If you are not the dancing type, then you can simply relax near one of the food stalls, enjoy the music and the ambiance.
I went to this festival with three of my Japanese friends, not knowing what to expect, but I left wanting more. Anyone can go join the dancing and not feel foolish. That's because many of the foreigners who were dancing didn't seem to have a clue about the next move. But after doing it around three times, it became really fun. Of course, I had no chance of winning the dance competition, but it was fun to watch the experts!
There are a variety of food stalls for your convenience, so you can pick and choose at will. Be it chicken, pork, shrimp, fish, it's all there. This is certainly a festival worth checking out and best of all it's FREE!
I guarantee that this event is one you will look forward to going to again. The only part of this festival you won't enjoy, is when it's over. Check it out with your friends-the Morito no hama bon dance competition/festival. It will be one that will live in your memories.
