Yosakoi Soran Festival has been held in June since 1992. More than 30,000 participants perform unique folk dances. It has become one of the biggest events and more than 2 million people come to Sapporo every year to observe this festival.
Until last year, I used to watch this performance on local TV program. Thus, I haven’t seen it live. This year, I went to the venue with my camera. It was fine and many people had come.
I was waiting for performers at a corner. They danced several times next to the corner. I found that I had to pay for seats to see it in the vicinity. I didn’t pay for it because I could see it on TV.
