Visit Goshogawara for a fascinating look at the region’s famed art and culture. First is a visit to the Tsugaru Kanayama Kiln. About 2,200 years ago pottery known as ‘Sueki’ was the first of its kind to be made in a kiln, which allowed the clay to be fired at a temperature of 2,480°F. You’ll also call at the Tachineputa no Yakata Pavilion to see a trio of some of the most unique parade floats you’ll ever see. Made of elaborately painted washi paper, these jaw-dropping floats, over 70 feet high, are part of Goshogawara’s annual festival in early August.
