Roppongi Hills Bon Dance 2019

Free

The sleek steel, glass and stone 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.
