Ugo is located in the regional Akita Prefecture of Japan and has one of the most famous Bon Odori dances in all of Japan. This traditional dance is a symbolic dance to pay respect to one’s deceased ancestors. We travelled from Tokyo to Ugo, got dressed in traditional kimonos and learnt how to dance the famous Bon Odori dance. Join us for the ultimate Japanese cultural experience! It’s all here in our latest episode of Japanoizy, our original travel video series exploring the best of Japan.
