The Nebuta Festival takes place each year in early August in the city of Aomori at the northern tip of Honshu, Japan's main island. Nebuta Festivals are held in several places, although the one in Aomori is the most famous. The festival features huge floats in the shape of Samurai warriors made of wood or bamboo covered in papier mâché and lit from within by hundreds of lights. The warriors are famous generals or heroes from Kabuki plays.
