Okinawa Zento Eisa MatsuriRead Later
The Okinawa Zento Eisa Matsuri is held every year over the course of 3 days and boasts numbers of around 300,000 attendees. Eisa is one of Okinawa’s traditional performance arts, done to pay respects to and send off ancestors.

There are many Eisa teams, and it’s fun to see the different styles of the performance that each of them take on.
