Gujo Odori

Gujo Odori Gifu (Aug.)

Gujo Odori is held for 33 nights, from the middle of July to early September. It is Japan’s longest Bon-odori dance in terms of time, and has a history of over 400 years. It is said that in the Edo period, the lord of the Gujo domain had the Bon-odori dances of each village performed at the castle in an effort to promote harmony between the four social classes of warriors, farmers, artisans and merchants. It grew in popularity year upon year. It is said that the Gujo-odori is not a dance you watch, but a dance you perform. It is a fun event in which everyone can participate.
