"The Bentenya ladies at the old gate of Nagoya Shumoku-kan"

Nagoya-based chindonya group “Bentenya”. The art of chindonya is a decidedly odd yet cherished part of Japanese culture. It is street advertising, where gaudily-dressed performers hawk a product or service for a client, while a cheerful musical ensemble plays in the background. The art of chindonya started in the waning days of the Edo shogunate and saw its peak in the postwar Showa era. While TV and internet have largely made street advertising a thing of the past, the movement has experienced a resurgence in recent years.
