Hikiyama Museum曳山博物館

Museum / Science Museum

It is a museum concerning one of the three largest float festivals in Japan, the “Nagahama Hikiyama Festival” which is registered as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, and is held in April every year in Nagahama City. There are four festival floats in the collection, two of which are exhibited in the museum. These luxurious and gorgeous ornaments with gold engraving, wood carving and lacquer coating are a must see. There are also an exhibition of stage dummies and a “Kid’s Kabuki” (Japanese classical drama) video show, which is performed on one of the stage floats that is a highlight of the festival. There is also a coffee shop at the museum.

曳山自体の大きさ、高さなどは京都の鉾や、他の地区の祭り屋台などには負けますが、作りの良さ、緻密さなどはけっして負けるもではなく、実に素晴らしい。曳山以外の展示物は少ないものの、ボランティアの方の無料説明が有りわかりやすい。2Fに映像室が有り、映像を見れば、もっと理解出来ます。曳山は12山有りますが、今年の展示は孔雀山と萬歳樓の二山が展示して有ります(毎年変わります)。館内には小さいながらカフェも有...

長浜観光パスポート利用がお勧め

曳山が2つありますが、展示内容としてはあまり見ごたえはありません

Shiga Main Areas

around-area-map

Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
