Gujo Odori performance

Dance Demonstration on the stage

It is the only facility in Japan where you can experience Gujo-Odori dance all the year round.

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.
Gujo-Hachiman Hakurankan is the only facility where you can see the demonstration of historical Gujo-odori dance all the year round.
