What is Aomari Nebuta Matsuri?
The Aomori Nebuta Matsuri festival is meant to bring out all the hidden colors in Japan and is said by many spectators to be surprising similar to the much heard of Rio Carnival of Brazil. It is also known as a celebration that marks the harvest of crops where people beat drums, dance, cheer and play the flute in joy. Some of the things visitors may see are the giant floats that parade through the streets as figures of spirits, gods, ancestors and demons and can measure up to nine meters wide by five meters high.
These creative floats move gracefully along the streets to entertain the visitors along with the haneto dancers that sway along with the gala who dress in colorful regalia and have a particular dance style. The event includes over 200,000 haneto dancers that dance in tandem with the floats and is an amazing scene to watch. The Aomori Nebuta Matsuri 2013 festival is a huge part of Japan’s culture that plays a major role in the teaching and development of upcoming Japanese generations.
