A Hina Festival event that decorates downtown Seto-City with cute Hina Dolls. The main attraction is the huge Hina decoration at the Seto-Gura Museum, a gigantic pyramid of Hina Dolls about 4 meters high - which the locals call the "Hinamid" (a play on the word "pyramid"). This impressive display features about 1,000 dolls made of glass and earthenware, and is exhibited throughout the event period. Every weekend there are experiential workshops where visitors can try their hand at making Hina dolls! Also check out the wide variety of snacks and local food for sale around the city, with special attention to the Hina Lunch and Hina Sweets.
