Hikone Bayashi Whole Dance Competition

This is the climax of the summer in Hikone. With the new folk song made in 1960, “Hikone Bayashi” thousands of citizens participate in dancing and parading on the shopping streets. In recent years many groups of people dressed in novel styles take part in this event and gain popularity.
