Okinawa Zento Eisa Matsuri沖縄全島エイサーまつり

Event

Held on the first weekend after the end of old-Bon according to the traditional lunar calendar, the Okinawa Zento Eisa Matsuri is a summer tradition in Okinawa. A large-scale event held over a three day period, the festival is comprised of the Michijune, the Okinawa City Young Men's Festival, and the actual Eisa Festival. The sounds of songs, sanshin, and skillfully-played drums reverberating across the festival grounds are truly thrilling. Visitors can enjoy the wonder and vigor of eisa dancing in its birthplace.

Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
