When the sun goes down, the streets of Okinawa City come alive with traditional performances

Every summer from June 13—the anniversary of the “Eisa City Declaration,” a statement of commitment to the traditional art of eisa dancing issued in 2007—eisa dances can be enjoyed on weekends at various venues throughout Okinawa City, such as Okinawa Comprehensive Athletic Park, Southeast Botanical Gardens, and more. Performances typically feature three to six youth dance troupes, each with their own unique style.
