Hina Dolls Tour in Shiogama
Hello! This is ariTV’ Ōe.
Today is the day of the Hina Matsuri (Doll Festival) in Japan and the whole of Shiogama celebrates the day with a special event called Shiogama de Hina-meguri (“Shiogama Hina Dolls Tour”).
Besides the former Kamei residence as the main venue, 37 galleries, set up in local stores, display a variety of hina dolls. You can find traditional hina dolls and also modern hina dolls as well.
It’s also an occasion to talk with the friendly Shiogama shopkeepers. Starting with conversation about hina dolls, everybody seemed to be having a good time there.
