Nebuta House Wa Rasse4.0
This museum was opened in 2011 and shows history of the summer festival, Aomori Nebuta Matsuri, displaying art works of illuminated floats used in the past. In the atrium are several life-size floats with very impressive, larger-than-life images. The words "Wa Rasse" are coined to mean harmony ('wa') with 'rasse', the spirited shout in the festival.

Amazing 🎈-like statues.
If you get bored quickly this will take around 20 minutes... But if you are patient, there is a movie every hour/half an hour, explaining the meaning of the statues.
Most is in japanese, but there are museum guides walking around and explaining to the interested.

Beautiful displays and inexpensive entrance fees. Combine tickets with the A building observatory! Really fun stop. Download the app/QR code for English descriptions of the exhibits.

As you arrive in Aomori by train Wa Rasse will be the first sightseeing place for you on the right side of Aomori train station. Nebuta floats that were used during the Nebuta festival in the previous years are placed here for you to see and why not, perform.
Give it a try! You will love it!
Come back in August to enjoy the festival! You will never forget it!

Small bit super cool. Prepare mostly in English. You can see how it is made.
