An event in which 30,000 Hina dolls collected from throughout Japan are displayed throughout the city. Visitors can see various kinds of Hina dolls by touring the various venues. Numerous other events are held, such as a hina parade where children wear the same Chigo costumes.

Back on March 3rd, several years back, I found myself in Katsuura for a martial arts seminar. It takes place every year for any foreigners in Japan, who are black belts or at least more than just beginners and they try different styles, attend seminars and on the last night drink way more than they should making the trip back to Tokyo rather rough.

But we had some time and we visited the town only to find this shrine on March 3rd, or Hinamatsuri. This is the doll festival where dolls representing the Emperor and Empress from the Heian period are arranged with all their courtiers on different tiers.

And as this shrine is seemingly famous for this, there were a lot of dolls there and a lot of people including a rather sketchy looking man wearing a magical girl outfit. Don't ask, we avoided him as much as we could.

But the shrine and the dolls were impressive and it made for an interesting time.

An attractive shrine in the middle of Katsuura. They are famous for their doll exhibit around Hinamatsuri (girls' day).
At night the stairs leading up to the shrine are lit by the lampions lining the stairway. Very atmospheric!

first, you see Torii (red Shinto gate) and long stairs going up on the hill. after you climb up on those stairs and go through another Torii, you see the a little narrow path still going up. you basically climb all the way up on the hill, and you will see the main shrine and the sacred tree next to it. it was very divine moment. and somehow I felt like I was feeling the power of that sacred tree. when I visited, it was very cold morning, but the cold breeze and the sunlight felt good. also the view from the way up there was nice. you can see the whole town and the ocean.

Probably the nicest shrine in town, it is reached up a few different long stone staircases. Could be a bit of a hike for anyone not in good shape. At the top is a rather typical (yet still pretty) shrine, with a couple hidden ones, too.

The view of town is half the fun.

In March (?) they have a huge doll festival here, but in October the place was closed and under construction lol.

It's about a 10-minute walk from Katsuura Station. It's located halfway between Asaichi Street and Shimohonmachi Street in the first half of the month. There are 60 steps that are famous for the Big Hinamatsuri. There are no doll decorations in front of the Hinamatsuri, but we climbed the steep stone steps of Tomisaki to the upper shrine. It was quite a climb. On the way, we could see Katsuura Bay, which was beautiful. The shrine is on a hill, and the porch has sculptures by local master craftsmen. Also, if you climb the steps in front of the shrine, there is a square where you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing while looking at the sea in cherry blossom season. However, it's probably a place where no one usually comes. I visited during the Hinamatsuri or when the flowers bloom.
