Takayama Festival Floats Exhibition Hall

Museum / Science Museum
The Takayama Festival is one of Japan’s three great Hikiyama Festivals and registered a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. This hall has a standing exhibit of yatai, the gorgeous floats that are the festival’s main attraction. It’s on the precincts of Sakurayama Hachimangu Shrine, at the center of the festival action. Four of the 11 yatai used in the fall’s Takayama Festival are on display, and they change them annually in March, July, and November. They also maintain a TV room where you can watch a video of the festival, as well as a reference area with festival paraphernalia and documents. It’s a great way to learn about the festival’s history and happenings in detail.

    Amazing display of floats that go around the town twice a year. Wish we could have come during the festival season - April and October to have an even more interesting experience. Only 5 were on...
  • Worthwhile but expensive

    I write expensive because it’s double the price of some of the other museums, and half the length, however Japan doesn’t really do traditional tourism yet, so when you take into account that it is...
  • A real WOW

    One of the places I loved very much in Japan. I wish I could see the festivals with the floats moving in the streets. The floats are beautiful and impressive.
