As one of the most popular Bon Odori, the Koenji Awa Odori will take place around Koenji station in late August. The festival began in 1957 to revitalize the local shops, but has grown to include over 10,000 dancers and 1 million spectators. Dancers located at eight areas will start performing at the same time along with flute, shamisen, chime and taiko drum accompaniment. They will move through town in the shape of the number 8, an auspicious number in Japanese culture.
