Stroller: wheelchair-friendly, so you can poke even baby strollers. Souvenir shop on the ground floor is quite large, are all different.

  • The famous sequence dancing in daily. Time has feels short in 20:50 from 20, but what exactly is a much better actually. Awa Odori and purchase tickets in the House fee is 1000 yen, depending on the hotel and discount coupons and deals for the guests. I always use-25% discount hotels. When visiting along the way, Awa-Odori may would experience time, want to try dancing with a dancer's 躍remasu on the stage, but in some cases, halfway to go dancing (lol). An excellent dance? Travelers were pressured from the dancer's Ray, were honored at the end will receive a keepsake, such as a towel. It will surely become a unforgettable experience. Incidentally, my embarrassing slants and of bashful, I so never once danced. Even if returning to the House, a little dance, I try.

  • Roper weigh station fifth floor so even into the souvenir shop on the first floor. I want a souvenir without match was what you want here, but did not purchase the clerk wetted under 4.5. Call, Publisher, and view. To be honest, the bureaucracy distance. Corporate customers looking for something I guess.

  • Loved the dance performances! Great place!
  • Great awa odori performance and have halal restaurant
  • Good place to feel the atmosphere of tokushima
  • Cultural dance performance for about 40 minutes, quite entertaining and fun! Souvenirs and local products aplenty in the shops too.
  • It was an amazing cultural experience to see the Awa-Odori Japanese dance group, with the cutest little kids, and also teens, young ladies and old gentlemen all dancing in unique styles along with live traditional music. Foreign visitors are encouraged to jump up and have a quick workshop on how to do the dance, and then all the dancers join in and everyone from the crowd is invited to join, followed by a final performance.

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.
