Travel Hinano Tsurushi Kazari Festival March 02, 2019 / by Junko Tsurushi-bina (the hanging hina doll decoration) festival in Izu-inatori. Strings of small cloth dolls are hung on either side of the stand displaying Hina dolls for the girl’s day (dolls) festival. Those tsurushikazari decorations are so lovely and amazing 😍😍😍 Susanoo shrine @Izu-inatori Many hina dolls were displayed on the stairs of the shrine! And don’t forget to enjoy the local food. Izu-inatori is famous for ‘Kinmedai (金目鯛)’, a kind of red snapper. Its sashimi melts in your mouth. I had simmered Kinmedai. It was so tasty😋 I will definitely come back!! Izu-inatori is only two stations from Kawazu. It was a great combination journey of Kawazu cherry trees and Tsurushi-bina!
