Kuroishi, a town on the central Tsugaru Plain of Aomori Prefecture holds its own Nebuta festival (called Neputa in these parts) on July 30th and August 2nd each year.

The parade features more than 50 floats, most in the shape popular in the neighboring Hirosaki Neputa with a small number of the free-form Aomori Nebuta-style floats also taking part.

Even though the festival is smaller than the Hirosaki and Aomori City processions, there is a history of Neputa in the area from the Edo period with the official city event beginning in 1955.

Dates: 30th Jul–2nd Aug, 2019
Start/End Time: 6:30pm – 9:00pm
