The Nakaita Heso Matsuri

2:00pm – 6:50pm
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.

This will be the first time the event has been held since 2019.

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