“Nagoya Odori” is one of the oldest and most fascinating Japanese traditional Kabuki-style dance and theatre performances in Nagoya. It is held annually around mid-October.
In “Nagoya Odori” you can enjoy the impressive visual art, impeccable choreography of the traditional Japanese dances, and the unforgettable stories of some of the “most iconical” theatrical performances in Japan with a modern twist.
There will be a Geisha parade, so this will be a chance to get close to the Geishas and see how gorgeous and refined their dances and their Kimono too!
Meet your host at the Tsurumai JR train Station entrance JR2. Just right in front of Tsurumai Park ( and very close to the Tsurumai subway line).
After a brief introduction of the host and the experience, you will head to the venue’s surroundings.
You will take a walk through the souvenir shops and food stalls. It is your chance to get some local treats or souvenirs.
After that, you will watch the Geisha’s parade and take pictures of their gorgeous Kimonos and dances.
After passing the security check, you will enter the theater and head to your seats. Once in your seat, your host will explain all the things you need to know about the performance to fully enjoy your day.
Time to see a real Kabuki-style dance performance. Your host will do an introduction to the Kabuki-style dance and the most common dance moves and tools and explain the dances in detail. Feel free to ask questions about the performance during break times.
Once the performance is finished it is time to leave the venue. Your host will walk you back to Tsurumai JR Train station and/or give you directions to your hotel or any other place you want to visit next.

Sharing Japanese culture with other travelers is such a powerful experience that gives me the chance to bring them closer to the exciting world of Japan’s art performances. I’m an apprentice of Nihon Buyo with more than 3 years of experience dancing traditional pieces. I know how hard it is to understand some parts of the Japanese culture like the traditional performances so I will be very happy to share with you all the secrets of this amazing art.
I’m looking forward to explaining to you everything I know about Nihon Buyo and Japanese dances!
