②Matsuri

「Goshokawara Nebuta 」



The Goshogawara city Tachineputa Festival is a summer festival held annually between August 4th and August 8th. Along with Aomori Nebuta Festival, HirosakiNeputa Festival, and Kuroishi Yosare Festival, it is known as one of the four largest festivals of the Tsugaru region.

Tachineputa are massive 23-meter (75 feet) tall 19-ton (38000 lbs) parade floats.At this festival, Tachineputa are conveyed through the city of Goshogawara while float carriers and dancers excitedly shout “Yattemare! Yattemare!” The Tachineputa parade never fails to captivate the audience with its unbelievable size and vigor. In addition to the three large tachineputas which are regularly exhibited at the Tachineputa No Yakata (Tachineputa Museum), a total of 15 floats of various sizes are featured in the festival.


The Origin of the Massive Neputa

The oldest written record regarding tachineputa in Goshogawaradates back to 1907. It notes that great land owners of the time competed against each other to make the highest neputa. The neputas were said to be visible from neighboring towns as they are recorded to have reached a height of 65 feet. Unfortunately, the massive neputas became obscure as the schematics and records of the massive neputas were lost after two devastating town fires. In 1993, some lost scematics and pictures were found, thus reviving the tachineputas. Today, GoshogawaraTachineputa has gained much popularity as one of the leading summer festivals along Aomori Nebuta

「Towada Art Centre」


The Towada Art Center (Towadashi GendaiBijutsukan) is a contemporary art museum in Towada City, located about half way along the route between Hachinohe and Lake Towada. Opened in 2008, the museum forms the centerpiece of Towada City's efforts to transform itself into a "City of Art" where visitors can experience artworks that exists in symbiosis with the surrounding nature and cityscape. Its unique structure consists of a jumble of small, individual buildings connected together by glass corridors.


The museum's permanent collection exhibits over twenty modern art installations made by artists from all over the world, including work by Ron Mueck, Jeong Hwa Choi and Yoko Ono. Each piece was created exclusively for the Towada Art Center and most are housed in their own individual rooms. These rooms were in turn designed specifically for the artwork that they contain, and feature various windowed openings that allow the art to interact with the surrounding city.
