“Interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2012

The exhibition hall is well set out with replicas of various floats. Many of them have mechanical figures which dance or perform at various times - a bit cheesy. This is worth it if you haven't been to a festival in Japan which featured floats. If you have, I recommend you spend your time elsewhere. One big plus though is that there is a huge shop to the right of the entrance to the exhibition hall where you can buy an amazing array of local, packaged food and souvenirs.
