Inuyama-City "Dondenkan" Inuyama Festival Museum

  • "Dondenkan" Inuyama Festival Museum

Gigantic, 8-meter tall floats on display!

Always displaying any three or four of the floats used in the famous Inuyama Festival, which is held annually on the first weekend of April, this facility provides with a chance to see up close and appreciate the intricate craftsmanship with which they were made, anytime throughout the year.
Impressively detailed wood carvings, gorgeously embroidered flags, lacquered and gold foiled parts, are but a fraction of the amazing points of the sightseeing. The building resembles the shape of old Machiya stables, narrow but with high ceiling, that in olden times were build especially with the purpose of storing the floats. Also, watch a condensed demonstration of Inuyama Festival procedures condensed in a 6-minute show, and the fantastic garments used by the "Chigo" children during the event.
