Owara Kaze no Bon / Bon Dance of the Wind
Kaze-no Bon or Bon Dance of the Wind is held from September 1 to 3 in every year and its origin dated back to 1702. Two hundred fifty thousand people from all over Japan visit this small town, even though whose population is only twenty thousand in Ecchu Yatsuo, to enjoy this Bon Dance of the Wind. It is not enthusiastic festival such as Awa-Dance in Tokushima, but it has a little different character. There are three ways of dancing to exemplify the subtle and profound. One is women’s dance wearing “yukata” and woven hats deeply, and dance forward quietly with accompanying soulful Chinese fiddles and “Owara” lyrics. The second is men’s dance with rising their feet higher and forward bravely. And the last is men and womens’ dance together with delicacy.
