Pray for the success of the Rugby World Cup Lion Dance in Chinatown 20 September 39, Yokohama
To celebrate the success of the Japan Rugby World Cup, a traditional Chinese lion dance was performed in Chinatown in Yokohama, while many tourists watched it.
The first Rugby World Cup Japan tournament held in Asia began on the night of the 20th at the Tokyo Stadium in Chofu, Tokyo.
During the tournament, the finals will be held at the Yokohama International Stadium. On the 20th, a traditional Chinese lion dance was performed at the Yokohama Chinatown in Naka-ku, Yokohama to pray for the success of the tournament.
While the drums and dragons were ringing, local youths manipulated two lions to perform acrobatic movements, and caught the heads of tourists at the mouth of the lions.
Tourists gathered to shoot vivid traditional dances while cheering.
On the day when a match is held at the Yokohama International Stadium, many shops in Yokohama Chinatown will extend business hours until 11pm to welcome foreign tourists.
“It is said that Yokohama is the birthplace of rugby in Japan, so I want to spread the culture of Yokohama Chinatown to the world as a result of the competition.” I was talking.
