The Doll's Alley - Hina Meguri Stroll (Ningyo Komichi Hina Meguri)

In the weekends preceding and after the Hina Festival Day (March 3rd), households in the neighborhood of famous Hina Dolls Store Yoshihama Ningyo decorate their Hina ornaments near the entrance so passers-by are able to enjoy each one of them, in what is known as "Ningyo Komichi" (The Doll's Alleys). Then, 15 local children selected in a draw are dressed in miniature traditional garments of old Japan and do a procession by the nearby streets. An extremely cute event to commemorate the Girl's Day, at this renowned Doll's Town!
