The 46thBon Odori Festival is jointly organised by The Japan Club of Kuala Lumpur, TheJapanese School of Kuala Lumpur and The Embassy of Japan in Malaysia. 

It will be held on 16th July 2022 at Kompleks Sukan Negara Shah Alam (Panasonic) in co-operation with partners including the State Government of Selangor, Tourism Selangor Sdn Bhd, Invest Selangor Bhd, Perbadanan Stadium Malaysia, Alumni Look East Policy Society (ALEPS), Japan Graduates’ Association of Malaysia (JAGAM).

The Festival dates back as far as 1977. It is an annual Japanese cultural event held as an effort to promote and strengthen friendship between Japan and Malaysia. It offers an opportunity to the local Malaysians to experience avariety of Japanese art, dance, foods and drinks. It is also a great opportunity for the Japanese community in Malaysia to be introduced with Malaysian culture through dance performances organized by Tourism Selangor.

As this year marks the 65th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Japan and Malaysia, as well as the 40th anniversary of Malaysia’s Look East Policy, the organizing committee of the Bon Odori with all the partners hope that the occasion will serve as yet another opportunity to bond the two peoples of Japan and Malaysia.
