Overview

This festival began in 2001 when the city received 7000 hina dolls from Katsuura town in Tokushima prefecture. Nowadays, 30,000 hina dolls are used to decorate the city, enveloping it in a colorful atmosphere. The 60 steps at Tomisaki Jinja Shrine in Hama-Katsuura are decorated with 1500 dolls. Visitors are treated to magical scenery when the dolls are illuminated in the evening. The highlight of the festival is the 6000 dolls on display in the hall of Katsuura City Art and Cultural Exchange Center. During the festival, there is also a doll procession and a dance parade with children in costumes.
