February 11th - April 3rd
With the coming of spring, the City of Yanagawa is gorgeously decorated with “sagemon (ornaments displayed at both sides of a tiered stand for dolls)”.
When a baby girl is born, her relatives and grandmothers who wish her to grow up in good health to be happy start sewing beautiful handballs stitch by stitch to be used as sagemon for her first Dolls’ Festival.・
Yanagawa Dolls’ Festival Sagemon Meguri was started in order to let many people appreciate this heartwarming practice and gorgeous sagemon.
May 3rd - May 5th
Aboard a boat named the Sanshin-maru that is afloat on the waterway, elementary school and junior high school students of the Fune-butai (stage on the boat) Conservation Group show marvelous musical performances. Streets along the waterway get crowded not only with people but also with rows of night stalls packed to the full.
