Aomori Nebuta Festival青森ねぶた祭


The Aomori Nebuta Festival combines several traditional events into one-the Tanabata festival, which was conveyed to the area from China in the Nara period; the ancient custom of sending off the dead, doll and pest-driving away parades, and other long-held Aomori customs. Nebuta are five meter tall illuminated festival floats modeled after kabuki stories and legends; the sharp glares of the figures depicted are particularly distinctive. Parading through the city to the sounds of reverberating drums and cries of rassera!, the Aomori Nebuta Festival is a stunning event and highlight of summer in Aomori. The grand finale fireworks display is also a must-see.

          Aomori Areas


          Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori's fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
