Japan’s Sanriku Coast, which was hard-hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake, is a treasure-trove of folk performing arts.
There is no place quite like the Sanriku Area.
In Fukushima, Miyagi and Iwate Prefectures alone, there are more than 2,000 performing groups.
The Sanriku International Arts Festival has been held every year since 2014.
Through this festival, we introduce audiences to the charms of Folk Performing Arts — Geinoh — which have been passed down for generations.
Audience members from Japan and around the world have the opportunity to participate in cultural exchange activities at the festival, forging creative connections across the globe.
