The exhibition of Nebuta floats was extremely interesting and well organized. We had a great experience there, it became some kind of preamble to our visit to Nebuta Warasse museum in Aomori. That doesn’t mean however that it’s not worth going here if you have...More

Traveled here with a tour from a cruise ship. A great way to spend an hour or so listening to drums, watching local Artisans at work, feeding fish in the pond, and walking around the shops. The art displayed here is absolutely breathtaking. The drama...More

Nebuta and Neputa are same meaning. The difference is just a pronunciation of Japanese dialect of sleepy. There are many styles of Neputa in Aomori prefecture. The Hirosaki-styled Neputa is in this museum. The big fan shaped Neputa is about 10m in hight. We can...More
