Tachineputa no Yakata (Tachineputa Museum)

Meet Tachineputa standing 22 meters tall!

The Goshogawara Tachineputa Festival is one of the three major Aomori Neputa festivals, alongside with the Aomori Nebuta Festival and Hirosaki Neputa Festival. Its appeal lies in the magnificent parade of floats, with the tallest towering more than 20 meters high. 


The Tachineputa no Yakata (Tachineputa Museum) is a facility where visitors can admire the power and impact of the Tachineputa. One will undoubtedly be overwhelmed by the Tachineputa that reaches heights equivalent to a four-story building. The exhibition space is a spacious atrium with an open structure extending from the first to the fourth floor, while the area around the Tachineputa is sloped to allow visitors to observe the display from different angles.  


Visitors can also watch films of the festival, as well as watch demonstrations and experience playing taiko drums and traditional music accompaniment. It is an impressive facility that is definitely worth a visit.
