Nanki Katsuura Doll Festival

Nanki Katsuura Doll Festival

Hina dolls

This morning there was a special on Oyaho Asahi TV about the doll festival in Katsuura, which is held from February 1 through March 31st.

Katsuura is a great destination for walking the Kumano Kodo, dining on fresh tuna, and now you can learn about this interesting part of Japanese culture too.

As you walk around Katsuura you can peek inside many shops that have traditional dolls set up to see a variety of displays.

After seeing the displays, how about a hike up the amazing Daimonzaka to the tallest waterfall in Japan with one of our volunteer guides?
