This unusual Japanese festival is half Chinese and double Dutch…

Held as one of the most unusual festivals in Japan, the Okunchi Festival in Nagasaki pays tribute to the 17th century Dutch and Chinese traders, who regularly anchored their ships there, through a traditional Dutch dance combined with a Chinese dragon dance.
