Sturdy float made of wire with lights that reflect the different colours of the Statue. Its a quick tour not a lot of Statue but they are huge. The place is beside the A store which sells all kinds of apple products.

Well worth a visit, the floats are simply amazing. You wonder at the craftmanship to build such a beautiful delicate construction. To think they build 22 new ones each year. Very colourful and clever

We were on a cruise and found this museum less than a mile from the ship. It not only had some of the lighted paper floats that they use for their anual festival, but hands on experiences trying to create them. Lots of fun!

This Museum is not large but the exhibits are amazing. The creations are a work of art which must have required the artistic talent of many people. Air Conditioned, with a small souvenir shop attached. Reasonably priced entrance fee. Worth a visit

You can come and see the floats up close for about 500 yen. Not a lot is in English, and it's crowded during festival time. I like the dark atmosphere so you can see the floats lite up. They also had a live drum band...More

If you are visiting Aomori on a cruise ship, it will not be a walking distance from where your ship will dock. It is around 15 minutes drive. I do not know how much a taxi will cost, but the cruise ship usually provides a... More
