The third edition of Hakata no Matsuri Exhibition is currently being held at Hakata Traditional Craft and Design Museum, featuring forty-six Hakata dolls. Roundly shaped dolls wearing traditional happi coats and other summer attire create a summer festival atmosphere. An amabie (Japanese yokai ghost believed to ward off diseases) figure is also on display to protect visitors from the spread of the new coronavirus.
