Harajuku Omotesando Super Yosakoi Festival 2020

Dance, Markets & Festivals

Large crowds gather to watch over 100 regional teams parade, perform and compete around the streets and stages of Omotesando and Harajuku. Although it only started in 2001, Harajuku Omotesando Super Yosakoi Festival has become one of Tokyo’s most spectacular dance festivals. Yosakoi is a modern adaption of traditional Japanese dances such as the famous Awa Odori, and was first invented in the city of Kochi in 1954. Over the years Yosakoi festivals have rapidly gained popularity and grown into some of the country’s most spectacular events, with teams wearing original costumes influenced by their local culture and modern trends.

The festival is held over two days around Yoyogi Park Event Space, the NHK building, Meiji Jingu Shrine and the main street leading through Harajuku and Omotesando. There are small parades on both days in front of the NHK building, the main parade on Omotesando avenue however, takes place only on Sunday.

A full timetable is yet to be announced.
