15th APEC Women Leaders Network Meeting(19-21 September 2010 Tokyo)

The Traditional Japanese Dance

Sep. 19 Opening Ceremony

Explanation of your vent and PR

The present Japanese dance is closely related to "Kabuki" (Japanese traditional dance) which was started by Izumo-no-Okuni about 400 years ago. During the Edo period (about 200 years ago), this form of dance became quite popular and many new dance stories were written. Today, many of the Japanese traditional dance performances originate back to this Edo period.
Each dance has some special story to tell. Typically each story is approximately 20-40 minutes in length (Of course, the dances that will be preformed for you today only describe the essence of each dance).
