The Wa Rasse Nebuta Museum in Aomori showcases some of the most spectacular Nebuta Floats from Aomori's annual Nebutamatsuri. The museum is a great place to learn about the world famous festival and everything Nebuta. The museum walks visitors through the history of Nebuta and it's importance to Aomori City.
