Tokorozawa Festival

 

The “Tokorozawa Festival” is an exciting festival where 200,000 people bring their spirit and enthusiasm every year. The main event of this festival is when the festival floats decorated with paper lanterns line up and the “festival music” and “dance” compete with each other. The music at the Tokorozawa Festival is not written down and is inherited through an oral tradition called “juumaryu Festival Music”. The dances are also interesting and are totally improvised like the way the “shishi lion” and “tenko fox” intensely move to the hurmous  “turtle” and “hyottoko”.
