    Location:
    Meitetsu Toyotashi Station, East side area

    The "Oiden Dance" features participants in teams called Odori-Ren performing the impressive "Miseru" dances - choreographed with the sole objective of bedazzling the crowd. This participatory festival has two divisions, the "Basic Dance Division", where each team performs in a tournament-fashion, and the "Arrangement Division", where the teams perform their own original dances.
    The festival starts with the "My Town Oiden" events, held in various districts across the city from about a month prior to the the "Oiden Sou-Odori". The Oiden Sou-Odori event is where the champion Odori-Ren teams from each My Town Oiden ultimately battle each other in dancing.
    The best Odori-Ren teams from each district then gather for the Oiden Sou-Odori competition, making for an impressive and fierce show of performance.
    Besides the charming Odori-Ren dancing performances, pay attention also to their gorgeous garments - another wholly interesting item to check.
    If you come across a Tobi-Iri-Ren, feel free to get yourself dancing too, as such teams are put together with the particular objective of gathering the crowd of spectators for dancing!
