ABOUT CULTURAL ARTS

Festivals all around Japan are known to show many traditional dances that have been passed down the generations. As you travel through the prefectures of Japan, you will see the how each dance may be similar to another, but will often have subtle differences that show the varying culture throughout the country. Of course, dancing is not the only performance seen at festivals in Japan; and as we strive to represent as much of Japan in our Matsuri, we must also include modern Japan where you can experience choreographed dances to modern music, live music, performances, and more! Enjoy the experience as you see what these performances can show you about Japanese culture and look for chances to participate and interact with the performers on stage!
