Takarabune was founded by Akira Yonezawa from Tokushima, the birthplace of Awa Odori.
Their performance at a number of Awa Odori events held in Tokyo has generated growing interest among a variety of media, and the group has gained a reputation as the hottest Awa Odori group in Japan.
They give performances of Awa Odori over 250 times annually.
They give performances at high schools and they try to pass on the tradition to the next generations.
Takarabune was the first in the Awa Odori community to run a one-man live show at a club.
The members are mostly in their teens and twenties, the majority of whom have more than 10 years of experience.
In Takarabune, all members are dual-role experts trained both in dancing and musical accompaniment, unlike typical Awa Odori groups where members are divided into dancers and musical accompanists.
This allows Takarabune to build a unique and dynamic program on the stage!!
