Yosakoi, which originated from Kochi Prefecture in 1954, is now danced in over 200 places in Japan, and in 33 countries and regions across the world.
Just by dancing with the Naruko, the symbol of Yosakoi, everyone can participate regardless of race and gender, and with no limitations in dance styles and music. With this freedom, Yosakoi evolves together with the culture of various regions and is loved by people around the world.
We bring to you this special summer event, “Premium Yosakoi in Tokyo”, with the hopes that Yosakoi will help make the world a brighter place and bring smiles to everyone amidst the current Covid-19 pandemic.
