Harajuku Omotesando Super Yosakoi 2022

Usually taking place in late August, the 2021 edition of the event sees team descend on the Harajuku/Omotesando area in October. The two days of the festival sees a huge team performance dance contest taking over the area.

The traditional dance festival is on a massive scale and sees 6,000 performers in teams from throughout Japan competing for the top spot.  There will be a parade in front of NHK along the avenue within Yoyogi Park that links the park to Shibuya on both days from 10am until about 6pm and a parade down Omotesando avenue on Sunday from 10am until 5pm.

In the past, there have been stages near Harajuku station and another within the Event Square at Yoyogi Park, but with the redevelopment of the Harajuku Station area, it’s not clear if it will be the same for 2021.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
