Bicchu Takahashi Matsuyama Odori備中たかはし松山踊り


A huge folk dance event held from August 14 to 16 each year in front of JR Bicchu-Takahashi Station in Takahashi, Okayama Prefecture. Practically the entire population of the city gets involved. During the event, the streets of the city bustle with spectators and dancers. The dance is ancient and said to have been started in 1648 when Mizunoya Katsutaka was lord of Bicchu Matsuyama Domain to pray for good harvests of the five principal grains as well as the success of local merchants.

          Okayama Main Areas


          Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
