睡魔之家 "WARASSE"博物館就座落在青森火車站旁,展示著許多睡魔祭的台車。
Located near Aomori train station, the Nebuta Museum "Wa Rasse" demonstrates lots displays of Nebuta Festival.

每年八月夏季時分,睡魔祭會展市全新的一座睡魔;通常,完成一座睡魔,大約需要費時一到兩年。
Every year in summer time in August, there will be a brand-new designed Nebuta. A Nebuta usually takes one to two years to complete the work.

我最喜歡上面圖片這座,因為小孩子們的表情都非常生動。
The following one is my favorite one because the facial expression of the kids is so vivid.

而且,睡魔館還提供一項體驗活動,一天當中上午下午各30分鐘,是個讓我們稍稍明白睡魔的完成為何需要一至兩年時間的機會。
Moreover, you can experience the paper-sticking activity in the morning or afternoon at the specific time. After the activity, I finally understand why it takes 1-2 years to finish a Nebuta.

瞧~這一小個我黏了大概五分鐘,竭盡全力紙面還是凹凹凸凸。
Look! I spent about 5 minutes to complete this one; though I tried to do it so thoroughly, the paper surface was not smooth eventually.

逛完睡魔館,大廳就有用青森縣產蘋果做成的蘋果派,熱熱的,內餡香味濃厚。我買了一個卡士達醬的蘋果派,果泥在舌尖微微暈開酸甜滋味。
In the museum, there is an apple pie stand in the lobby, and the pie is warm so that it smell even more delicious. I bought a custard-favor apple pie; when the apple butter spread on the tongue, the sweet and sour came out vividly.
