At the "Autumn Awa Odori" held in Tokushima City for the first time in two years, a demonstration experiment was conducted to ease behavioral restrictions for spectators who had been vaccinated with the new coronavirus vaccine.

"Autumn Awa Odori" is held every year in Tokushima Prefecture, etc., but it was canceled last year due to the influence of the new coronavirus.



This year, "Asty Tokushima" was held at the venue for the first time in two years, and on the final day, the 7th, a demonstration experiment was conducted to ease the restrictions on the behavior of the audience.



In the experiment, we targeted people who had been vaccinated for more than 2 weeks and those who had been tested negative within 72 hours, and only 100 of the 1500 seats were next to each other without any gaps. I had them sit down and watch.

Audiences who participated in the demonstration experiment entered after presenting documents proving that they had been vaccinated twice at the reception desk and photos of the documents taken on the screen of their smartphones. I was dancing and applauding.



A man in his 50s in Tokushima City who participated in the demonstration experiment said, "I'm worried about infection, but I'm really looking forward to seeing this kind of viewing at the event."



Takuya Tokushima, chief of the Tokushima Prefecture Tourism Policy Division, said, "While there are expectations for the resumption of the event, the prefecture will also work to respond to safety and security."
