If you cannot attend the real matsuri

Fantastic floats of the last year. As good as it gets for you can get up close to the floats which during the real festival may not be an option due to the crowds

The distinctive red linear box (Designed by Molo, d/dt, Frank La Riviere Architects) on the waterfront invite you to come and see what the Nebutaya festival is all about. For a modest fee for 600 yen you can explore the history and interact with the display. the distinctive festival floats in paper are so beautiful in person. The simple timber... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and also learnt quite a lot! The outside of the building is interesting, red and striking. Inside you will find information regarding the history and also many displays. Probably our favorite "touristy spot" in Aomori.

The exterior of this museum a frisbee toss from Aomori Station is quite striking. They've managed to transform a basic rectangular warehouse sized structure into something that brings to mind a lantern. Inside you will get to learn a bit of the tradition of the colorful illuminated floats that feature in Aomori's big August festival... but more interestingly get to... More

If you are in the area this is certainly worth a visit, just to see & understand a bit more about the traditional Japanese Nebuta festival. This museum is just across from the Aomori train station & has the best of the Nebuta floats from the current year displayed. Two floors of displays & lighting, and then make sure you... More

This is a red building with metal plates as its exterior design just opposite the A factory. The entry fee is 600 yen and you can get a look into the art form of Nebuta festival. Check the timing since there are 2 live shows by the folk artist and its a real pulsating opportunity to see them perform. They... More

As others have said the floats are beautiful but they are only 5 of them. Not much English and thus is probably a bit expensive considering that. However it is the only way to see such amazing floats and experience a bit of the festival. I wrote a comparison with the similar museum in Hirosaki on tht page.

The floats are massive and you an really appreciate the skill that went into creating it. I also liked the gift shop there. The location is very convenient, next to the main bus terminal.
