Hi, I'm Julien! I’m a member of the Japan Bon Odori Association. Our goal is to promote Bon Odori, a traditional form of folk dance performed during the summer season in Japan. During summer, Bon Odori are held all over the country in towns and villages. They are important events that bring communities together. My hope is that it could also become a tool to promote exchange between Japanese people and foreign visitors/residents. A quick word about myself: I was born in Belgium. After graduating from university with a degree in Japanese Studies, I came to work in Japan where I have been living for almost 15 years. Currently I work as a freelance interpreter and tour guide.
