"Nishimonai" is a small town located in the northern foot of Mt. Chokai. It becomes crowded only in the period of Bon season during the midsummer with tourists from all over the country who come to watch Bon Dancing. The characteristic of this dance is the mysterious and strangely erotic "Hikosa Zukin" and the ancestral "Hanui" costume which are very beautiful. Please enjoy the sophisticated dance as much as you like. This style of Bon Dancing represents the Tohoku Region and is famous nationwide.
