Hida Furukawa Festival Exhibition Hall

飛騨古川まつり会館

Furukawa Festival is a registered UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage thanks to its spectacular floats and drums that go on parade during the festival. 

For those visitors who cannot visit the two-day annual event held every April, the Hida Furukawa Festival Exhibition Hall (Hida Furukawa Matsuri Kaikan) is the next best thing.

Capturing the dynamic energy of this lively festival, visitors can explore exhibits of the actual yatai festival floats, as well as related artifacts, before interacting with hands-on displays. Try the same ‘tombo,’ or dragonfly, stunt performed in the live festival, or learn about the history of the festival and local traditions like the ‘Yobihiki’ custom for feasts.

Three times every hour, the 4K Theater invites viewers to truly experience both main parts of the festival on the giant screen, including the energy of the Okoshi-Daiko celebration and the elegance of the festival float parade.
