Such big floats that the Japanese make! How amazing... from the artistic conception to the festival... but for the entrance fee, not really worth it... Nonetheless, good experience in snowing Aomori... a great break from the snow outside :) The eatery inside is pretty good...More

The floats are huge and amazing. They are bright and colourful. Remember to bring a good camera as some areas are very dark and there are lots of reflections from the float lightings. The entrance is on level 2. They have a video showing the...More

There are four large floats and a few smaller ones. It was an impressive piece of art. However it was quite small. It will take less than one hour to explore the whole museum.

It’s static display of floats is charming but other than that, one can finish the whole museum tour in half an hour. Can skip this is you are in a hurry.

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!

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
