Awa Odori Hall offers visitors the opportunity to learn about and spectate on an attractive, traditional Japanese Bon dance.

Visitors to this museum can absorb the history of the dance and watch vibrant performances all year round. Across the building's five floors, you'll also have the chance to shop for local produce, peruse a specialist library, and even take the ropeway from the fifth floor to the summit of Mt. Bizen.

  • Enjoyed and engaged the show so much. Precious culture should be well preserved and shared.
  • 徳島市の阿波踊り Awa Odori festival is not to be missed when visiting Tokushima. If you miss the festival, live performance in Awa Odori hall is the next best thing to witness this beautiful dance.
