[Go on a Hina Doll Meguri Tour (Takehara)]

Hinamatsuri (Hina doll festival) is an annual event held across Japan on the 3rd of March.
The festival is held to pray for the healthy growth, prosperity and happiness of girls, especially those 10 or younger.
Families with young girls will display a set of beautiful traditional Japanese dolls called hina dolls at home.

Takehara Machinami Hina Doll Meguri (Hina Doll Tour in Takehara Town) is being held!
During the event, about 200 sets of hina dolls handed down in the families of Takehara will be displayed in various facilities around the Machinami Preservation District. Some have been handed down since the 17th century!
The decorations, faces, and sizes of the dolls differ depending on the period they come from, so it is interesting to compare them as you go around.

You will also be able to enjoy live koto (a 13-string zither) and shamisen (a three-stringed lute) performances and gourmet foods related to the Hina Festival, among other activities♪
This is an event that both children and adults can enjoy!

Konnichiwa! My name is Anne.
I live in a port town called Kure City, 40 minutes by car from Hiroshima City.
We have many beautiful islands. There is an abundance of seafood and fruits.
The place is surrounded by sea and mountains. You can experience walking on narrow streets, hiking on mountains and even climbing stairs.
Strolling around the town is also enjoyable.
You will surely find your own Seto Inland Sea trip here!
