Seattle Bon Odori
July 20 & 21, 2013 - www.seattlebetsuin.org
Japanese culture comes alive
This event is like a cultural street dance. First the Bon Odori opens up with a series of events, You are going to see an earth pounding demonstration of Taiko Drums, a martial arts demonstration, that you won't want to try at home, followed by some delicious Japanese food. I love the Yakisoba.
But do not get too full because thousands will fill the street to do colorful Japanese folk dances. There are really more people in the street dancing than watching.
Time: Sat 4pm - 10pm
Sun 3pm to 8 pm
Location:Seattle Buddhist Temple 1427 S Main Seattle
* It does not matter if you don't know the dances, just have fun
* If you want to learn the dances before the festival, practices are held 3 or 4 times in the couple weeks prior
