Yamachosuji Dolls Festival

Dozo-zukuri houses transformed into dolls galleries

  • Yamachosuji Dolls Festival

This is a dolls festival that is held in the Yamachosuji area, a Preservation District for Groups of Traditional Buildings, where rows of dozo-zukuri (earthen-wall storehouse style) houses still remain. During the festival, traditional houses that are normally closed to the public, such as the Sugano House, the Dozo-zukuri Museum (used to be the Murosaki House) and the Ikadai House, are transformed into galleries displaying dolls. This is a chance to see the evolving styles of beautiful dolls and the interiors of old houses that you can’t normally visit.

  • Yusoku-bina (Empress doll)

  • Dolls in the Sugano House and Shinichi Murosaki House

  • Doll in the Ohta House
