This is the draincover for Mochigase Town, now part of Tottori City.
It shows the Nagashibina Doll Museum which houses a collection of over 1,000 Hina dolls of the Edo period from all over Japan.
Mochigase Town is one of the few places in Japan that still practises the rituals at the heart of the Hina Matsuri.
There is a nice little garden and pond within the grounds
With the obligatory hungry koi!!!
The building itself is an unusual example of a large wooden building built in the traditional style.
