Awaodori Kaikan hosts the theatre of Awa Odori dance, the rope way to access Mt Bizan and a gift shop with information counter. All of them very well organized.

Whether alone or with a group of people, the Awa Odori Kaikan provides a great experience with the regular occurring dance exhibitions. It ended up being more fun than I thought it would.

While on a National Geographic Photo Expedition of Japan we had an opportunity to see their dance performance, photograph the dancers after the performance, and tour their museum. Great experience! They even drew members of the audience into the dance.
