Dondenkan is a town development facility, or museum, located in Inuyama City, Aichi Prefecture. It is home to four floats, each eight meters in height, which are paraded through the streets in the Inuyama Festival, one of the country’s Important Intangible Folk Cultural Properties. The floats exquisitely decorated in gold leaf and lacquer are an impressive sight. The building has been built to reproduce the town houses of the Inuyama castle town, complete with Japanese rooms and earthen floors. The second floor exhibition room displays models and materials relating to Inuyama Festival. It’s a place where you can really feel the thrilling festival atmosphere.

There are three festival floats inside that are worth a look for the 100 yen admission...unless you're there for the Inuyama Matsuri, this is the only place to see a float...
Reviewed:2016/06/12 For those who can't make it to the festival
If you are interested in seeing festival carriages, but you can't come to the festival, this museum gives you an overview displaying three of them. Interesting experience.
There is also a tatami room...

          Aichi Main Areas


          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
