Tachi Nebuta (tall float), Goshogawara City, Aomori Pref.
4th - 8th August, 2019 | Goshogawara City, Aomori Pref.
Tachi Neputa is famous for its illuminated three dimensional floats which are made out of paper and painted elaborately, much like the Nebuta Festival in Aomori, but the best thing is the size! The largest floats in the parade are over 20 meters (over 65 feet) tall. In fact, the name Tachi Neputa, (literally standing Neputa) refers to tall-standing composition of the floats. Tachi Neputa is held every year for 5 days from August 4th to August 8th. It doesn’t matter if it is a weekday or not, the party still goes on. The very last day is a popular day because the main floats stand facing one another and a popular Japanese singer from Goshogawara, Ikuzo Yoshi makes an appearance every year at his hometown’s festival on this last day. official website ›› http://www.tachineputa.jp/festival/
