The Spectacular Kiriko Lanterns
of the Noto Peninsula

Noto, the land of festivals. Perhaps the most famous of these are the Kiriko festivals, known for their beauty and liveliness. The Kiriko festivals are held from summer through autumn, and these nighttime events are centered around shrines throughout Noto.

This museum was reopened in March of 2015, after relocating to Marine Town from its previous location in Tsukada Town, Wajima City. The interior recreates the magical atmosphere of the Kiriko festivals, with traditional festival music and beautiful Kiriko lanterns.
