Japan Expo Paris - July 14-17, 2022 Paris-Nord Villepinte Exhibition Center


For the first time in Europe, a show will be bringing together over 80 yosakoi dancers from 6 troupes on stage. Among them, let’s introduce the French troupe Koidoukai!

Posted on


Koidoukai was founded in 2010 in Bordeaux (France) by French and Japanese students. At that time, it was the first European yosakoi team. In 2016, the team sent representatives to Kochi, Japan, in order to formalize the launch of an international yosakoi project towards the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, and was granted the title of Yosakoi Ambassador. The year after, Koidoukai organized a meet-up between the European teams in Bordeaux.

This year, the team has reached 30 members ! Training is every week with a lot of enthusiasm in order to share their love of yosakoi with as many people as possible through their participation to events about Japan, in the South-West of France but also other regions.
