Children from many countries will gather during this long winter in Hokkaido!
The “Children of the World” Festival is a heart-warming event of world dance, music, chorus and friendship. Youth artists collaborate with local children to build this festival together.
For this fifth edition, there are three groups from overseas: “Pong Lang” from Thailand, Paul Hsu Senior High School from Taiwan and Etonos from Russia. They are accompanied and supported by local youth groups from Hakodate, plus a special appearance by the young-at-heart Hinokiya.
The high quality performances by children at this event always impress the adult audience. We are waiting to present you with a unique atmosphere to chase away the winter blues.
