The famous Awa-Odori festival is one of the summer highlights in Japan. Every year thousands of visitors come to Tokushima city in Shikoku to witness the spectacular performances of hundreds of local and international dancers for a total of 4 days in August. Many amateur groups perform the 400-year-old dance, but the most attractive show is guaranteed to come from the professional groups that rehearse for months. You can easily watch the amazing dance performances from the designated seats by buying tickets in advance.
Although the festival takes place all over the city, there are four main designated spectator seat areas (called "enbujo") where you can witness the spectacular performance of the best groups:
- Shiyakushomae enbujo
- Aibahama enbujo
- Minami-Uchimachi enbujo
- Konyamachi enbujo
There are two 2-hour block performances every day: from 18:00 to 20:00 and from 20:30 to 22:30. Each ticket is valid for one 2-hour block performance.
Starting from 2017, the organizers of the Awa-Odori Festival have designated a section of the best seats at Shiyakushomae enbujo specially for foreign visitors! English-speaking staff will be providing announcements and explanation about the parading dance groups. You can buy the special seat tickets only here!
