It's hard to characterize this place. It's not a museum, nor is it an amusement park. It's an experience. Visitors begin with a little explanation of neputa, and how they differ from the nebuta of neighboring Aomori. Then they are treated to a bit of the music and drumming of the festival. After that visitors are free to wander through... More

Walking through the Hirosaki Park I could hear drumming and wondered where it was coming from. After literally stumbling upon this attraction after walking through the historical houses found out where the drumming was coming from.

The centre is beside the bus & car park for Hirosaki Castle & Park. As we were there during the week in which the cherry blossoms were in full bloom,... More

The first main hall of the "village" is the best part, a room filled with massive, intricately decorated floats from the Hirosaki Neputa festival. Performers perform on the giant drums and play a flute, just like during the real festival. They even let any visitors who want to try their hand at the drums try. The other nice part of... More
