Well worth the visit to the museum. Really HUGE FLOATS that are hoisted onto the shoulders of many men & paraded thru the street during the festival. Beautifully & intricately decorated. Bring your camera to take pictures but please remember NO FLASH.
Really nice ! The entrance for the museum is 900¥, you have a english guide for free and you can go in a second museum where you can see a reproduction of the Toshogu in Nikko (wonderful). The templs there is beautiful too
Wonderful woodcrafted floats for annual festivities !
It was interesting to see. There so many things to see and read how life was hard in the days.
It is curious to visit all the carriages. But especially the Nikko Temple miniature.
