I am now in the city of Takamatsu on the island of Shikoku.   There is a festival here in Takamatsu I'd like to see.  There is also a very large festival one hour away in the city of Tokushima, called the Awa Odori.   It is one of two festivals (the other being the Akita Kanto Matsuri) that I based my entire trip around.  The forecast is for rain tonight, Thursday and Friday so I have my fingers crossed that nothing gets cancelled.
