【Event Has Ended】 2017 Gujo Odori Starts This Week

July 3 , 2017
The Gujo Odori (Gujo Dance), one of Japan’s top three “bon” festivals, is held 30 nights from July 8th to early September in order to pay respect to one’s ancestors and family members that have passed away.
The most distinct feature of the Gujo Dance is the period of four nights in August when the dancing is held all night long.

※Please note that all of the dances start at 8:00pm, and the last train for Gifu City departing from Gujo-Hachiman Station is at 8:30pm, so please make sure and secure lodgings in advance.

The venue of the dance changes each night, so for the specific location and other additional information please see the following link.
