26th Performing Folk Arts in Toshima
Time Out says
Toshima Ward teams up with its 'friendship towns' for this showcase of traditional arts, showing off the local ‘Nagasaki Lion Dance’, playing 'Fujimoto Festive Music' and inviting the Chichibu Yatai Orchestra from Saitama’s Chichibu to provide impressive accompaniment. You can also watch ritual dancing and listed to shrine music, performed by guests from Iwaki in Fukushima, and see a puppet show from Nagano’s Minowa. This is your chance to forget about busy city life for a brief moment and indulge in old-school artistic pleasures.
