At the Yosakoi Festival, dancers dance with their naruko (wooden clappers) on various stages set up around the city and parade down the main streets. All the music is "Yosakoi Bushi", however, some of them are arranged into rock, samba, enka, and other styles of music. The diversity can also be observed in the dancers' costumes. Awa Odori (Awa Dance) is a type of Bon Odori, and Awa Odori Festival is one of the three largest Bon Odori Festivals in Japan, including Nishimonai Bon Odori (Ugomachi, Akita) and Gujo Odori (Gujo-shi, Gifu). During the festival, men and women perform their dances in groups (forming a line) and parade around dancing to the music.
