It’s announced that the 47th Hi-no-Kuni Festival will be held in August 2024. The Consortium Kumamoto participates in the “Otemoyan So-Odori parade” held at the Hi-no-Kuni Festival every year since 2011.

The Hi-no-Kuni Festival is a summer tradition in Kumamoto. Even if you’re watching it, you can’t help but move your body to the spectacular performances parading around the center of Kumamoto city along with the Kumamoto folk song “Otemoyan” and nimble rhythmed “samba Otemoyan”.
Join us, and enjoy the summer tradition in Kumamoto.

It is scheduled for Saturday, August 3rd. We’ll meet you at the Civic Auditorium Sears Home Yume Hall.
