The Nakaita Heso Matsuri

2:00pm – 5:30pm
Free

Heso is Japanese for belly button, so this festival in Nakaita goes to town with the concept, featuring Eisa Dancing, Belly Dancing and ‘Heso Odori’ – belly button dancing.

As far as we can tell, Heso Odori is basically painting a face on your belly and putting something that looks like a hat over your head. It’s all good fun though and it doesn’t go for very long so the joke will have some time to wear off.

The event starts at 2pm with water being sprinkled on the main shopping street in Nakaita.  This will be followed by various kids parades with the main dancing happening a little later in the afternoon.

The Nakaita Shopping Street is near Nakaitabashi Station on the Tobu Tojo Line.
