The big highlight of this museum is the opportunity to see the best four floats from the last Nebuta festival up close. There is some history of the festival and info on how the floats get constructed as well. Plus if you time your visit...More

Amazing modern-looking museum! One of three places dedicated to the Nebuta festival, alongside those in Hirosaki and Goshogawara. The exhibition changes every year, so you can see the floats that won during the previous festival. There are around four large floats and also a number...More

The museum building alone is a very modern piece of architectural design. The lantern floats with their intricate designs, colours & Japanese figures/characters are absolutely eye catching. The museum contains a lot of history regarding the Nebuta which you view as you walk through the...More

This is one of the most amazing museums we have seen. The floats are colorful and creative. You get to learn of the history of the Nebuta parade. Plus, we got to do "hands-on" play the hayashi taiko drums and dance (a 2 step)!

Giant Paper floats that will light up and amaze you and of course you need a selfie in front of each. You mioght to get to see some arisans at work.

Great floats and enjoyed the performance of shamisen and drums. Would love to see the actual parade that occurs later in year, must be quite a sight.

I like the red building, it is very unique. Must visit this Museum if visited Aomori. Also got performance at 1st floor at for specific timing, visitors are invited to participate at the end of the performance.

This museum is awesome. Yes, most of the signage is in Japanese, and it helps if you are on a tour with an English speaking guide.However, the floats inside are gorgeous. They have 3 approximately 60' high lighted floats that are the current floats that...More
