Really enjoyed this museum, it gave you the history of the festival and the floats from last year's festival were on display and they were magnificent!! Also on the hour, there is a 10 mins short film (with english subtitles) of the festival.

I really enjoyed this visit, don't get turned off by how many floats are on display they are absolutely amazing, but there is also so much more in this well planned experience, learn how the floats were made in the past and present enjoy the photos of past parades, time your visit to use their large drums,

The museum is almost next door to the Aomori rail station. The red metal one-storey building can be recognised from afar. The entrance fee is 600 yen per person. The museum exhibits include different nebuta floats, which the locals paraded during their festivals. It is a good opportunity to see them in close view and to study their content. Depending...

Fantastic museum. If cant be there to see the festival this is a good second. The lighting (or lack of it) really shows the floats to their best.

Nicely put together collection of floats and explanation of the annual festival and history of the event. Would love to return to Aomori for the festival.

This museum hosts the floats for the annual parade and the colours are truly spectacular. There are regular opportunities to join in with the dance and music.

The beautifully made floats transported me to another time and space! It was extremely mesmerising and I can only imagine what the parades would have been like with the drums, the summertime conditions and the crowds. I have a couple of favourites- the cats and the gorgeous lanterns at entry. A must visit for those visiting Aomori.

It was a trip to ease the mind and relax over a long weekend, so I didn't do any research before arriving in Aomori. Hence, I was truly pleasantly surprised at this museum - looking very modern on the outside housing a great number of traditional Japanese Neputa Festival floats and sharing it with the public. The works of the... More

This museum is about 5 minute's walk from Aomori station and the red metal building is easily recognizable. Admission tickets can be bought on the 1st floor where the entrance is. Paid for a combination ticket which covers this place and Hakkodamaru Ship for JPY600. The first thing we did was take funny photos with the Haneto dancers' photo prop... More
