The schedule for another year of meeting of worlds is available from the Events page or by clicking on the image on the right. We hope you will enjoy the anticipation of seeing new spectacles from both first-timers and from familiar faces. We are looking forward to seeing you in Motomachi Park.
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 sixth edition, there are three groups from overseas: “Tasima”, “G-Next” from Russia and “The Lan Yang Dancers” from Taiwan. 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.
