With its cityscape of white mortar walls constructed in the “dozo dzukuri”style, Yoshii Town in Ukiha City has a retro feel to it. Features of the tour of dolls held in this traditional town include the “hakobina” (dolls in display cases) and “okiage” (dolls made by covering thick paper cut into the shape of people with cotton and wrapping it all in beautiful fabric). In addition, visitors can see doll-making tools and other rare items inherited by the family of local historian and collector Kaneko Fumio at the newly construsted Kaneko Fumio Exhibition Museum. While in the area, pop into one of the many antique shops or take a tour of the city in a rickshaw (Sundays only; 500 Yen per passenger)!
