Well worth the 400 yen entry. You can see how they build the floats used in parades. A small but useful explanation is in English. You can partially put paper on a float as well

This museum really gives impression that one day we should return to Aomori - just to see the show live on the streets! Great videos with differences of the past, stunning floats and information about building those modern floats. Also some interactive 'try it yourself'-points.

This is a really awesome place. Four and a half stars. The floats are really a sight to see. It would get five stars but they did not have much as far as English translations and only four floats on display. I wish there were...More

If you are visiting Aomori on a cruise ship, it will not be a walking distance from where your ship will dock. It is around 15 minutes drive. I do not know how much a taxi will cost, but the cruise ship usually provides a... More
