Walking Pilgrimage Tours
  • Awaodori Dancing Experience
  • As the saying goes, “If you raise your arms and move your feet, that’s Awaodori dancing.” The great appeal of Awaodori dancing is that anybody can quickly become a dancer. After watching Awaodori dancing, you can actually dance at the Awaodori Kaikan.
  • Walking Pilgrimage Tours
  • A pilgrimage journey to temples at 88 sacred sites in Shikoku was founded by Buddhist monk Kukai about 1,200 years ago. By experiencing this walking pilgrimage tour in Tokushima, the place of its origin, you will be able to sense the meaning of moving forward and the importance of deepening bonds.
