Girls’ Day Doll Displays: Katsuyama Historical Area

Maniwa City

The Hina Matsuri or Girl’s Day Doll Displays of Katsuyama is unique in that it brings together the agricultural heritage of the community and the tradition of ornate doll presentation. Some dolls are made of local vegetables such as corn, pumpkin and radish in homage to the agricultural history of the region, while most are antique Girls’ Day dolls made from wood or clay and silk.
