Children of the World Festival, Edition 6

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.

Year’s End Greetings

New-Year-1800-C

Our best wishes go out to all our followers and collaborators around the world. Thanks much for everything in 2018 and “yoroshiku” for next year. As always, we are doing our best  to bring you yet more new worlds to meet over the coming twelve months. Of course, we are already working with a slew of great artists on a 2019 festival program that you will really want to come and see. And, we have some new projects that we think you are going to like. Especially, we have a few “firsts” that we hope to roll out… Stay tuned to see what the new year can bring!

 

Hakodate Tops 2018 List: Come See Why!

2018-Brand-Survey
The “Brand Research Institute” in Tokyo has placed Hakodate at number 1 in its 2018  list of the most attractive places in Japan (their page [Japanese]).

It’s not a bad achievement for a small town on the northernmost island. Number 2 on the list is the much more widely renowned Kyoto.

We recommend a visit to see the qualities that put us here. And this visit is especially recommended to international artists…. Especially during the week of August…! Yes, WMDFs yearly application date of Oct 20th is nearly here. After Oct 20, we will be working hard to build next year’s worldwide program until the final decisions deadline of the third Sat of December.
