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

Cycled since I was a kid, moved to Japan in 2001, bought my first 'serious' camera in 2005. Spent the later half of the 1990s travelling in Australia, Hong Kong, India, Nepal, Japan, and the Philippines and wish I'd photographed a lot more back then.
