Tokushima

Trip Planner Asia  /  Japan  /  Shikoku  /  Tokushima Prefecture  /  Tokushima
Seemingly floating between the Inland Sea and surrounding mountains, Tokushima serves as the capital city of its prefecture. Famous for hosting the Awa Dance Festival, it draws over a million visitors every August for this colorful carnival of movement and culture. In the quieter months, you'll still have plenty of things to see and do during a Tokushima holiday, from cable car rides to the top of the nearest mountain, to visiting castle ruins and the capital's central park. Take a boat around the winding inlets of scenic waterways, then head to one of the city museums, uncovering the history of the region's thriving indigo dye industry. Put Tokushima at the heart of your travel plans by using our Japan trip builder.

Where to stay in Tokushima

Tokushima provides its guests with a more than ample selection of places to stay, from friendly budget hostels to upmarket, Western-style high-rise establishments. Hotels concentrate around the capital's central park and Shinmachi River tributaries, popular due to the location's convenient proximity to all major Tokushima attractions and good rail transport links. If you're looking to lay your head in a more traditional setting, explore a handful of Japanese ryokans a few blocks south of the park. When visiting in August, book early to avoid disappointment due to the large volume of visitors to Tokushima's dance festival.
