Gujo Odori, which is one of the top three major Japanese folk songs and dances in Japan, has 400 years of history and is very famous for being the longest dance period in Japan.
The festival is held everyday for a period of thirty-three festive nights from mid-July to the beginning of September, but it starts from 8 p.m., so it can hardly be seen except the nights in summer.
