The Ohana Estate and Villa in central Yanagawa is worth a visit any time of year, but the months of February and March see the property "all dolled up" with stunning displays for Girls' Day. Tiers of dolls and hanging sagemon (mobiles made of cloth animals and woven balls) are scattered throughout the mansion's many rooms and a massive display can be seen at the rear of the house. A few dolls are even set out in the villa's picturesque Shotoen, a garden in the center of the sprawling property.
