I've never taken this event seriously, as I was told by a friend that it was cheesy. Well it was actually somewhat cheesy.. Think my friend was right about that, it may be as astonishing as Koenji Awaodori but certainly has its own flow of energy. There were many teams coming from different parts of Japan to compete at this event in Tokyo. The mix of modern music, techno beat and traditional music present a fresh choreographed dance. The event today was organized into several small stages where things happened simultaneously. I was just around a few stages around Ikebukuro station. It was a great fun hanging around and take photo. Please check out this event if you have time next year.
