Exhibition section where you can learn the history of Tachineputa

It is said that the gigantic Neputa, which originated from a Chinese festival, was first recorded in Goshogawara circa 1907. The festival disappeared in the Taisho period (1912-1926) but restarted in 1998, first time in 80 years. The section for learning history is something you can’t miss if you wish to understand everything about Tachineputa.
