  • I decided to go to see it on TV and watch it. First of all, i went to the shrine which became the origin of the festival called Suwa Taisha. It was wonderfully splendid and overwhelming.

Dragon Dance is a must-see! It was my first time to dance with geishas, and I enjoyed it! The whole town was crowded with festivals and it was fun.

  • This year's Odori-cho also included Kago-cho, so We went to see the dragon dance in Gomachi. In addition to the town of Gogo, there are suwa, Chikugo, and Goto towns in addition to the town of Kago, but the first to dedicate the dragon dance is the town of Kago, and the dragon dance of the basket town is very popular in the local area. The golden ball represents the moon, and the dragon is chasing the moon to swallow it.
