Tokushima's Awa Odori 2015/3/20 22:51
I'd like to visit Tokushima during the Awa Odori this year. But the closest I am able to get a hotel is in Takamatsu.

Does anyone have any idea how crowded the trains will be between these two cities during the festival? I'll be using a JR Pass, so I won't be able to make train reservations until I arrive in Japan on July 31st.

I think Takamatsu is a good base.
Special trains run during the Obon Awa Odori period. You will also have an unreserved seat.

Thank you for letting me know about special trains running during the Awa Odori. Hopefully their schedules show up in Hyperdia soon.

Most of Japanese tourists take the bus tour. I think you don't need to worry about that.

i did the Takamatsu to Tokushima trip for the Awa Odori festival and the trains will be fairly crowded, since this is a very popular festival. they will have a special schedule and extra trains running during the festival.

there will be people passing out flyers with the train schedule, plus the schedule will be posted at the stations along the route.
