    Hawaii is one of the most familiar destinations for Japanese people. The historical and cultural ties (many emigrants to the islands) and affordable tours brought these two regions close together. You’d also be surprised by the popularity of Hula dancing in Japan and the sheer number of Japanese dancers, professionals and amateurs, practicing the art. Likewise, the nature, tropical climate and the spirituality of the native culture inspire many Japanese.

    Odaiba Hawaii Festival is thus one of the most popular events held during “Golden Week” (the holiday period from the end of April through the beginning of May with several national holidays). Some 600,000 people visited the event last year.

    The 15th edition of the festival will be organized around the theme of “Mahalo”, the Hawaiian word for “gratitude” and “thanks”. The colourful festival will take you to the tropical islands, through music, dance, food and drink, local products from the region. International and Japanese artists will stage brilliant music and dance performances. In a nutshell, feel Hawaiian atmosphere, without even leaving Tokyo.

    Special Lei Day and Keiki Hula

    The festival will be punctuated with Lei Day (1 May), the day celebrating the Hawaiian tradition of offering garlands, and Keiki Hula, a Hula performed on Children’s Day on 5 May (“keiki” is the Hawaiian word for child).
