  • To get to the center of Tokushima City, from the Otsuka Museum of Art in Naruto and the Uzushio Kanshio Boat, connect from the nearby Naruto Kita IC to Kobe Awaji Naruto Road and Tokushima Road, and head to the Awa Odori Kaikan, which stands at the foot of Mt. Mayuyama. I was in time for the performance by the hall exclusive association from 14:00. The hall is almost full. The easy-to-understand explanation and the demonstration on a close stage were very exciting. Flash is prohibited, but shooting is allowed.

  • I saw Awa Odori for the first time, but there was also a commentary, and it was very easy to understand, and it was powerful. It's about 10 minutes from the train station, so the location was good. I want to see the part of the night this time.

  • 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.
