Festivals: Awa Odori 2010

Went to the Awa Odori Festival in Tokushima, Shikoku over the weekend. It’s easily the best festival I’ve ever been to and it never disappoints.
I used to live in central Tokushima and think it’s one of the better cities in Japan to live in. Great people, easy to get around, and of course the festival.

I try and enjoy the festivals in Nagoya nowadays but to be honest they don’t stand a chance. Can’t wait for next year.

There’s more info about the Awa Odori on Wikipedia here



Lived in central Japan since 2001 and spend free days exploring.

  1. It’s the Tokushima version of the Japanese Bon Dance.
    I put a link to a Wikipedia article about it in the post so feel free to take a look.
