Wakayagi-Ryu Konokai is the only dance institute specializing in Nihon-Buyo of Wakayagi-Ryu in Hong Kong. The style of Wakayagi-Ryu is delicate, elegant and dynamic, reflecting a mix of Edo Era in Japan. Wakayagi-Ryu has been operating for over one-hundred years. Konokai was founded by Chika Wakayagi in Hong Kong in 1999. Aiming to promote the beauty of Japanese culture through Nihon-Buyo in Hong Kong, Konokai serves as a platform for cultural exchange.
Starting from 2007, Konokai had its first annual performance in Hong Kong which was a pioneer in introducing Japanese traditional art in a form of dance to general public in Hong Kong.
