"I reopen in Awa Folk Dance performance from October, 2022 and plan it! Don't miss it!"

I hear rhythm of one of Yoshiko when I pass through the country of Awa.
 Do you not experience Tokushima's greatest festival "Awa Folk Dance?"
 
Awa Folk Dance to sing 7,775-like musical accompaniment words on rhythm of "one of Yoshiko", and to dance, and to have fun. I am admired equally with Rio's Carnival from the hurrah and the intensity of the dance. Tokushima of the midsummer seems to have the whole town in undulation of the rhythm of "one of Yoshiko".
It is a dance of the native district that has been inherited for 400 years while changing the form with the times.

It is ... with a ream

Awa Folk Dance dances with a happi coat and yukatas together by the group unit called "a ream".
I am comprised of the person of 200 from dozens of people in many places, and dozens of reams are active only in the Tokushima city.
Each ream has a tradition and competes with individuality for the skill.

Origin of Awa Folk Dance

It is a beginning of Awa Folk Dance that merchants rush in a castle when I constructed a castle, and feudal lord Hachisuka (Hachisuka) housekeeping celebrated Tokushima Castle in 1587.
"Leave it in now, and a lord of Awa, Prince Hachisuka do it; the housekeeping very liked this dance so that was sung by Awa Folk Dance" and one of Yoshiko, and danced three days of the tray every year from the next year, and seemed to come to enjoy it.
