At Shigureden, in Arashiyama, there is an exhibit of paper dolls that runs until July 21.
Shigureden is an exhibition space cum villa that opened in 2006 in the western part of Kyoto.
Shigureden also is part of the mountain villa where the Ogura Anthology of One Hundred Tanka by One Hundred Poets first appeared. The anthology of poems was created between the 10th and 11th centuries by poets and nobility from the House of Fujiwara.
The dolls are made out of washi Japanese paper and took four years to make.
