The Tachineputanoyakata Museum is a facility where you can see tachineputa floats. The floats are actually used in a traditional event called the “Tachineputa Festival” held in early August every year in Goshogawara City. A tachineputa has a height of about 23m, which is equivalent to a seven-story building, you can see its grand appearance at close range. In the museum, screenings are done of scenes of actual festivals, and live performances of lion dances are carried out, so you can get a feel of the festival.
In addition, there is an entertainment studio called Kawarahira, where you can try your hand at making lanterns for tachineputa; a tachineputa factory, where tachineputa are manufactured; a tachineputa showroom, where tachineputa are displayed; and you can get in-depth knowledge of tachineputa. In addition, you can enjoy local cuisine while watching the Tsugaru Plain in the observation lounge. Why not drop in at the Tachineputa Museum, where you can fully enjoy the culture of Aomori?
