Gujo Odori Festival in Aoyama

 

Gujo Odori in Aoyama

„Odori“ means „dance“ in Japanese and Gujo Odori is a traditional folk dance festival in Aoyama, Tokyo. Gujo Odoris are held in many parts of Japan. The music is played in the centre with the people dancing around it. While many were wearing Yukatas, a lot of people were wearing modern clothes. In fact, there are some places where you can learn the dance and take part in the festival!
