Tokushima Awa Odori Festival 2007 (video)
As I’ve written about numerous times in the past, from August 12-15 each year, Tokushima prefecture hosts the largest dance festival in Japan called the Awa Odori Festival. If you were ever planning on visiting Tokushima, there is absolutely no better time to visit then during these 4-days in the summer! As I do every year, I participated in the festival by dancing with a niwaka-ren (meaning a group that doesn’t practice and just goes out and wings-it after a few Asahi beers). This year I danced with the Tokushima International Association (T.I.A.) group with some friends and students! Check out the video!
