About 100 private residences and stores around the whitewashed wall neighborhood in the Fukushima area display “Hakobina” (dolls in display cases) from the Edo and Meiji Eras (early 17th through early 20th centuries) and modern dolls, and also receive visitors. During the festival, the whole town takes on a bright atmosphere with dolls as far as the eye can see! At the opening ceremony on March 1, a parade goes through the town. Various events like a doll-making demonstration at Yame Doll Hall, tours by rickshaw, and a mermorial service for the dolls also take place! Pink paper lanterns fixed to private residences and stores indicate that dolls are displayed there.
