The New Cute Faces of Tourism!
Watch out Japan Deluxe Tours, you may have to start including day trips and add-on tours to the canal city of Yanagawa after the city began promoting themselves with the help of the Sagemon Girls.
Wait rewind, what's a Sagemon?
No, they're not a new K-Pop group or a Digimon, Sagemon (pronounced sah-geh-mohn) are decorations used during Hina Matsuri (or Girl's Day) for Hina Matsuri Dolls. Sagemon are handmade, decorative balls with bright designs to compliment the dolls. In Yanagawa, citizens don't just show off their Hina Matsuri Dolls during girls day, but also the Sagemon, making Sagemon the appropriate name for their city's new promoters.
