Awa Odori is a form of Bon Odori that originated in Tokushima Prefecture (previously known as Awa). It is known as one of Japan’s three major forms of Bon Odori.
At Awa Odori Hall, located on the second floor of the Awa Odori Kaikan, visitors can observe authentic Awa Odori throughout the year.

Performances are split into daytime and nighttime sections. The audience can participate in the dances in the “Awa Odori Experience Corner.”

In the Awa Odori Museum, located on the third floor, guests can learn about the history and charm of Awa Odori through exhibited costumes, musical instruments, historic records, and more.
On the fifth floor there is a cable car station, and visitors can take it to the summit of Mt. Bizan for a view of the entire city of Tokushima!
