EventsMorioka Sansa Odori (Sansa Dance)

This festival derives from a local folk tale that tells how people danced with joy, singing "sansa sansa" after a devil which had been troubling them for a long time went away. Enjoy the huge taiko (Japanese drum) parade, which is recorded in the Guinness Book of Records as the world's biggest taiko parade, and join dancing in a circle. A large number of people powerfully and dynamically dance, filling up the entire venue.
