Coal Mine Dance in Nippori, Tokyo

This weekend the Nippori Marche will feature guests from Kyushu, who will perform their traditional Coal Mine Dance. The market is on the east side of Nippori station. The tankobushi dance is a chance for everyone to join a classic Kyushu event, right here in Tokyo.

Saturday: 18:00
Sunday: 15:00 contest (best costume) and 18:00 (big final event)

Plus lots of local foods from farmers who take this market seriously, for 3 years now (and counting).

Same idea, different tune. We owe a lot to these people.
