The true Awa Dance Festival is Shikoku is Japan’s biggest dance festival, attracting well over one million visitors each year, but smaller events do take place in Tokyo during the summer. The Koganei Awa Odori is one of the larger of these. Expect to see plenty of taiko drumming and many stalls selling shaved ice drinks (kaki-gori). The dancing takes place between 6pm and 9pm on both nights.
