Reviving the Origin of Koenji Awa Odori!

The first Koenji Awa Odori in 1957, known as “Koenji Baka Odori”, is said to have been born out of the young people who would try to invigorate the city, running through the town jovially and humorously! In this app, dancers appear in various places with performances inspired by the “Baka Odori” and revive the local history.
