Excellent museum featuring costumes and music of the Awa-odori Festival held in summer each year. Occasional performances depending on the day of the week and lots of photos and models of this fabulous summer festival.

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.
