The New Eisa Museum
The new Eisa Museum opened on March 25th of this year and is located inside the Koza Music Town Sound Market. Here you will find all the information about Eisa Dancing – Okinawa’s esteemed traditional folkdance entertainment. Discover everything from the style of music and dance to the instruments that are being used, like the Sanshin and the Taiko drum.
Learn about the various groups around the island that perform Eisa, along with their unique style and approach to the dance. Visitors can even try on an Eisa costume or play with the taiko drums, and if you wish, even have your photos taken. Attendees will get a chance to go back in time, as archive footage is played of the All Okinawa Eisa Festival, Okinawa City’s most popular annual Eisa event.
