Spreading the charms of Japan to the world from Fukui



Folk dance strolling in Mikuni Town

Mikuni is a retro-flavored port town in Fukui Prefecture.
Mikuni Festival and Fireworks are well-known.
Also, “Obi no Machi-nagashi” held yesterday is getting popular.
It’s an event that hundreds of people go dancing through the old streets
along to a local folk song with shamisens and Japanese flutes.
Anyone can join if they apply in advance. (H.S)
