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

The building itself is an unusual example of a large wooden building built in the traditional style.

  2. Nice! If you ever get a chance to, you should go to Hina Matsuri in Hiketa, Kagawa-ken. You could get some great shots there and its very close to Hiketa JR station..... not that Hiketa is the easier place to get to, but....

    let me know if you ever go, the place is sentimental to me :)
