The Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse is located in Aomori City in the prefecture of the same name in the north of the main island of Honshu. It was opened in 2011 and is dedicated to the famous Nebuta Matsuri, the most famous summer festival in the region, which takes place every August in the port area of Aomori takes place.
The festival is best known for its huge, raft-like floats, which are largely made of Japanese Washi paper and are pulled through the streets in a parade accompanied by dancers and musicians. The motifs come mainly from Japanese mythology and are illuminated at night.
The Nebuta Museum Wa Rasse is open all year round and offers everyone the opportunity to marvel at the impressive, up to 9 meters long and 5 meters wide wagons. The four most beautiful of these are exhibited in the museum every year and are always replaced by four new cars after the festival. The museum is within easy walking distance of Aomori Central Station.
From this balcony on the second floor of the museum, visitors can view the entirety of the massive festival floats that are on display.
Thanks to the dim interior of the museum, guests can easily see the brilliant colors and luminous float displays.
