Roppongi Hills Bon Dance 2024

3:00pm – 9:00pm

The sleek steel, glass, and concrete of the Roppongi Hills Arena will be taken over by kimono clad bon dancers for the weekend. This year the Friday will just be a pre-party, so there won’t be any bon-dancing as such.

This festival boasts a unique dance — the Ropponjin Ondo — roughly translated as the Roppongi Workman’s Dance. All comers are invited to master the dance — no doubt featuring lots of typical Roppongi Hills work actions such as operating a keyboard and mouse, taking the elevator, and using the shredder. Additionally, the long Roppongi Hills association with Doraemon will continue with the “Doraemon-Ondo” dance featuring both Doraemon and his human side-kick Nobita.

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