Awa Folk Dance
People enjoy the Awa Folk Dance from August 12th to 15th every year. They dance to the music of Taiko, Kane, Shamisen, and the whistle. Tokushima City is filled with excitement during the festivities. Some say that the Haiya Folk Song developed into the Awa Folk Dance while on board the Kitamae Ships.
