高知のよさこい祭り

Yosakoi Festival in Kochi

“Yosakoi Festival” is one of the most famous festivals in Japan and it takes place every summer in Kochi Prefecture in Shikoku Island.

It’s a a festival which the local chamber of commerce and Industry began for recovery and reconstruction of economy after the war.

Although it was a Bon Odori style at first, now things such as rock, samba and hip-hop have been seen and it’s changed to a lively style with a lot of young people.

The dance type is aligned to each team and goes around such as contest field and theater in the city.

People make a team and think of choreography and costumes, and practice the dance for a long time.

It’s pretty tough, but the dancers can feel a sense of accomplishment, watchers also can enjoy seeing the sights.

四国の高知県で毎年夏に行われる「よさこい祭り」は
日本でも有名なお祭りの一つです。
戦後に景気の復興対策として地元の
商工会議所が始めたお祭りであり、
最初は盆踊りのようなスタイルでしたが、
今ではロックやサンバ、ヒップホップなどもあり、
若者がたくさん参加する、賑やかなスタイルです。
踊りはチームごとに揃えて街の競演場や演舞場などを
回っています。
チームを作って振り付けを考え、衣装を揃え、
踊りの練習が続きます。
かなり大変なようですが、踊る側は達成感があり、
見物する側は楽しめます。
