Wajima Kiriko Art Museum (輪島キリコ会館)

Reference/Local/Exhibition/Literature Museum

A museum located inside Marine Town in Wajima City, Ishikawa Prefecture which presents traditional kiriko votive lanterns from the Noto area. During festivals in summer and fall, shrine parishioners in every town in the area carry kiriko lanterns; the largest can rival four story buildings in size. Some 30 giant kiriko lanterns stand within the hall; traditional festival music plays inside the museum, and lighting is used to recreate the atmospheres of festivals being held during the day, at dusk, and in the evening. The viewing deck on the third floor gives a sweeping view of Wajima Port. The museum also has a shop selling original merchandise.

          Long, thin Ishikawa prefecture runs along the Sea of Japan up into Noto Peninsula. Highlights of the seaside towns lining the west coast include Kanazawa, often described as a "Little Kyoto" thanks to its old wooden tea houses and geisha culture as well as its picturesque Japanese garden, Kenroku-en.
