The Hokkaido YOSAKOI Soran Festival is a fusion between Koichi Prefecture’s famous “Yosakoi Festival” and Hokkaido’s traditional folk works, Soran Bushi. The festival is held across 20 venues in Hokkaido’s Sapporo City. Various teams, equipped with wooden clapper instruments called “naruko,” fans, and banners, put on dancing displays. There are paid seats available, but typically every venue’s performances are available to view for free.
