What is the Bon Festival Dance?
Since long ago, the Bon Festival Dance has been a fixture of summer in Japan. It is traditionally danced at community festivals throughout the country. Clad in yukata, or casual summer kimonos, participants at these festivals gather around the yagura, a tall scaffolding where a drum performance is held, form a circle and dance the Bon Festival Dance. To the people of classical Japan, the Bon Festival Dance was the highlight of their year, and they often danced until late into the night. These roots are still felt in modern Japan, and, to this day, the Bon Festival Dance is loved by many.
