Starting from the Nakoso-Shikura area of Iwaki City, the Iwaki Odori (dance) is without a doubt Iwaki’s biggest summer event, taking place in various locations based around Iwaki railway station.
The event was established in 1981 to commemorate 15 years since the city’s founding; its aim being to create a sense of community among citizens, with emphasis on care-free singing, dancing and overall enjoyment.
