March 25th to March 28th, 2021
Tango Passion Blossoms in the East
Enjoy four days of workshops, milongas and after parties featuring inspiring artists and marvel at the beauty of Japan's cherry blossom season.
After considering many options and waiting as much as possible to take final decisions about holding the "7th Sakura Tango Festival" March 25-28, 2021, we have decided that it is not possible to hold it as originally scheduled. We know that this second cancellation is sad news to all who were looking forward to participating and for us at Tiempo who were dreaming about meeting you again. We really appreciate your understanding.
During the past year of uncertainties, everyone had to take care. It was a difficult year to carry out all kinds of events such as a milonga. While experiencing through globalization isolation and then some relief via digital socialization, we feel that this can not replace the warmth and energy of true encounters like a tango embrace. Although the future remains uncertain, we keep looking for other things we can do during these times.
Once this situation has settled down, we hope to offer an event related to the Sakura Tango Festival by the end of 2021. If this becomes possible, we will inform you through this website.
Keep safe and see you soon!

The SAKURA TANGO FESTIVAL, to be held for three days in cherry blossom season, will be a great opportunity for people all over the world who love tango and who are interested in tango to enjoy this international exchange.
Argentine tango was born over 100 years ago, and it came to be known outside of the country. Mostly people appreciated the beauty of tango by listening to the music and watching the dance performances at the theatre as a form of art until about 50 years ago.
However, the tango scene has since developed greatly during the past 20 years, and now people around the world enjoy tango as a way to communicate as well.
Tango has grown from “art in the theatre” to “a communication tool in dancing circles.”
Since the tango was registered on the UNESCO World Intangible Cultural Heritage List in 2009, it has become even more popular. Tango festivals are now held all over the world, including Taiwan, Indonesia, China, Russia, Korea, the United States, Canada and Finland. In spite of the differences in culture and custom, tango fans from the all corners of the world visit these places and enjoy communicating through their common language of dance. Tango has been connecting people beyond the differences of race, nationality, culture and generation.
Since our establishment in 1997, we have been a pioneer in introducing tango as a non-verbal communication tool in Japan. Although many people are fond of dancing tango now, in Fukuoka, the gateway of Asia, it was the first time such a great festival has ever been held, that a great many tango fans got together from all over the world.
We are looking forward welcoming you in Fukuoka.
