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

今年も阿波お踊りに行ってきました。やっぱり今まで見た祭りの中で一番楽しい。8年前に徳島市にも住んでいて、とても落ち着いている、気分が良い市だと思います。
徳島の人たちは優しいし、自転車で市内にどこでも行けるし、そして阿波お踊り。名古屋の祭りも良いけど阿波お踊りと比べることが出来ない。

来年また行きたい

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.
