Welcome to Iiyama !

Iiyama City, the home of the doll museum, is situated in the northernmost part of Shinshu (Nagano Prefecture). Held dearly in the hearts of many Japanese people, Iiyama is a severe place shaped by the seasons - from the endless Nanohana blooms in Spring, lush green summers, bountiful Autumns, and the warmth of the people to counter beautiful but treacherous winter. Enjoy a very personal journey around this northern region of Shinshu. Here you will surely discover many fascinating elements in common with those exhibited in the dolls created by Mayumi Takahashi.
