Dance, they say, like nobody is watching. If that’s not your jam, go watch somebody dance. Head down to Naha in Okinawa in mid-November and experience the Worldwide Eisa Festival. This dance extravaganza is a showcase competition for eisa groups from all over Okinawa as well as outside territories. The traditional Okinawan folk dance is performed by troupes in three divisions—kids, junior, and grand prix—in a spirit of prayer, emotion and friendship. Eisa is one of Okinawa’s most important cultural expressions, so this is one for the culture vultures among us. For those who don’t just want to watch, there are also eisa workshops, a history exhibition, and guest artists.

The venue, the National Theatre, has parking. Tickets for the preliminary rounds start are ¥1,500 and for the finals, ¥2,000, and are available via the website for from the National Theatre’s box office.
