Ainu Traditional Dance is a unique dance performance by indigenous Ainu scattered in Tohoku, Hokkaido, Sakhalin, and Kurile Islands. We can see it at “Theater Icoro” near Lake Akan, Hokkaido. A 30-minute performance goes on a few times a day from 11:00 AM during May to October. Ainu has performed these ethnic dances in some rituals, celebrations, or other times for more than 800 years. They sing their unique songs with beating their hands to songs.
