Sayon Camara was unable to get a visa to enter Japan, so we have had to cancel the concert, as well as the Awa Odori tour. Rakuon-ren will dance as usual. We’re very sorry for any inconvenience.
Awa Odori + African = Awarican!
Come dance Awa Odori with the Rakuon-ren dance team. We’ll have a rehearsal before we hit the streets, so even first-timers don’t have to fret.
Take a look at last year’s event on youtube.
A drum team, a dance team, and a singing team make up the group.

“Just put your arms up, move your legs, and that’s Awa Odori!” Yes, there are as many styles of Awa Odori as there are dancers. You can enjoy lots of different styles!
