  • Really touched by the passion and friendliness of the guides in this museum. We learnt a little about the amazing Kawagoe Festival held each year in October. The floats or dashi are a sight to behold and each have an ingenious mechanism to raise and lower the incredibly detailed figures from within!
  • A small museum that tells the history and traditions of the Kawagoe Matsuri (Festival) which takes place on the third weekend of October. Very interesting costumes and the floats. It's a nice way for those who can't be there in those days to sense the spirit of the party.

  • Festival floats exhibition is a sight to see! That was particularly surprising, here float truck parts independently and only on the stage to rotate freely. I saw the culmination of one of the wooden architecture is. Corners can be compared to hear the same music school depends on little by little musical accompaniment is particularly interesting, my remarks about the propagation of Festival music and history. Get the impression like remains little Edo musical atmosphere basically. In the exhibition space of the floats have a stage and Auditorium, exactly with live music to listen to. According to the multi-faceted opener whistle on Kane on the big drum, snare rhythm band, tracks hover heaven Fox, okame and Hyottoko. You could feel the atmosphere of the Festival was a short time at.
