    Awaji Art Circus ( is an International Performing Arts Festival that has been held annually since 2015 on Awaji Island, considered in spiritual terms to be the Island of Japan’s Origin. During the Awaji Art Circus, performing artists gather on Awaji Island from around the world and perform for about one month at multiple venues, schools and local events on the Island, in addition to enjoying the history and nature of Awaji Island, experiencing its traditional culture and sharing the appeal of Awaji Island and Japan with the world upon via social media.
