Nebuta Museum "Wa Rasse" is a facility introducing the history and charms of the Aomori Nebuta Festival.
It is located immediately east of JR Aomori station.

Nebuta is the festival held in summer at many cities in Aomori Prefecture.
In Aomori city, it is held from 2nd to 7th in August every year.

Many floats are paraded with many shouting citizens through the streets in the evening.
A big paper lantern in the shape of a warrior is on each float, and the lights inside the lantern create a fantasic sight.

The face of the warrior drawn on the Nebuta lantern is the important feature. So various Nebuta faces by some creators are displayed.
