Goshogawara Tachi-Neputa Festival

7:00pm
Free
The fireworks festival on August 3 2022 has been postponed till August 9 due to heavy rain.

Goshogawara hosts the third of the famous Nebuta festivals in Aomori. The others being Aomori Nebuta in Aomori City and Hirosaki Neputa.

‘Tachineputa’ means ‘vertical Nebuta’, so called because Goshogawara’s Nebuta floats are very tall – some as tall as a three-storey building.

The Goshogawara festival starts later than both the Aomori City Nebuta and Hirosaki Neputa and finishes one day later.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
