Chofu Yosakoi 2023

1:00pm – 6:00pm
Free

After a 3 year hiatus, the Chofu Yosakoi festival is back.

Yosakoi is a form of energetic, expressive team dance—think Samba mixed with Awa Odori.

The two venues for this year’s event are Chofu City Green Hall and the Chofu Station Square. The Kyū-kōshukaidō (former route of the Kōshu Kaidō) venue for the nagashi dance has been canceled for 2022.

Aside from dancing there is usually lots of festival food on offer including oden, chijimi, kakigori, barbecued squid, yakisoba and candy floss as well as soft drinks and beer.

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
