Welcome Dance for Freshmen (新歓の踊り) | Keiteki Dormitory of Hokkaido University (北海道大学恵迪寮)| Sapporo

Hokkaido University has several dormitories, among which Keiteki Dormitory (恵迪寮) is famous for its dance performance
We went to Former Hokkaido government building yesterday, and accidentally could enjoy their welcome dance for freshmen(新歓の踊り)!

Look at their costume!!! Red loincloth only! Wow! I love their long-lasting tradition!

Their attire is very traditional, too↓ During this season, students living in the university dormitory perform welcome dance for freshman.
*School year starts in April in Japan.

They sing the dormitory song while dancing in a circle.

Their dance performance and cherry blossoms remind me of the spring season!

Spring has come to Sapporo!
