Detailed Travel Guide

The Tradition dates back to the latter part of the Edo period and is unique to the Inatori area. Older people born in Meiji period tell us that the practice existed in their childhood, making the tradition more than 100 years old, surviving the transition from Tokugawa government to Meiji Restoration.
This distinctive tradition expresses affection and love for young children and wish for their health and happiness. Dolls are made by hand to pray for the sound and healthy growth of girls, preserving the significance and protocol of the tradition and carried on to this day as handcraft exclusive of Inatori town.
