Hina Meguri in the Ancient Capital Akizuki

START: Feb 10, 2024 END: Mar 3, 2024

Akizuki, a town rich in atmosphere and history, once thrived as a castle town. Here, amidst the remnants of Akizuki Castle, alongside culturally designated gates and homes, the town’s historical essence is palpable. With the arrival of the Hina Matsuri season, the town transforms, inviting visitors to partake in a “Hina Meguri” (Doll Tour), wandering through its streets adorned with festive displays. A standout feature of this celebration is the unique Hina decoration at the Akizuki Castle ruins. The 21 stone steps leading up to the long house gate are ingeniously repurposed as a tiered display, presenting over 600 Hina dolls donated by the community. This display is not only a testament to the town’s rich cultural heritage but also a visually stunning experience.
