62nd Island-Wide Eisa Festival (Eisa Parade) 2017

62nd Island-Wide Eisa Festival (Eisa Parade) 2017

The 62nd Island-Wide Eisa Festival is a three-day event that kicks off with an eisa parade on the first day, eisa performances by Okinawa City Youth Associations on the second day, and selected eisa groups from all over the island on the final third day. It has developed into the biggest eisa festival on island boasting 300,000 spectators over the three-day period. During the event's "kachaashii" dance finale, visitors and eisa groups become one in the spirit of eisa.

The festival started off in 1956 as an eisa competition to commemorate the birth of Koza City and is held every year on the first weekend after Obon in Okinawa. It has become a summer tradition and a festival representative of the many festivals held in Japan. The sounds of the sanshin, songs, and rhythm of the drums are sure to move you! The energetic movements of the drummers are sure to captivate you! Experience the thrill of the real thing at the home of eisa.
