★ Tokyo Yosakoi H-1 (Hifumi One) Grand Prix

The original song "Tokyo Yosakoi Sodance-Hifumi-" was produced to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Fukuro Festival. "Hifumi" is a Japanese-style song with the motif of counting words starting with "Hifumi …", and is performed as a total dance at the finale of "Tokyo Yosakoi" every year, and is popular with many people. In 2020, the Grand Prix was held by soliciting videos of the performance so as not to break the connection with the local community and performers even in Corona. Please see https://h-1grandprix.tokyo/ for details.
