Awa Odori Street Art in Tokushima where one of the most famous dance festivals across Japan is held in summer. Awa Odori has a long history dating back more than 400 years. The local motto is "fools dance and fools watch, if both are fools, you might as well dance" which are also the lyrics to a common dance song. The local identity of residents of Tokushima very much depends on Awa Odori, and so naturally there is street art to commemorate this.
