Chrysanthemum dolls became popular in the Somei and Sugamo districts in the latter part of the Edo Period, but this shifted to the more centrally located Dangozaka in the Meiji Period. Visitors paid an admission charge to view the various chrysanthemum exhibitions set up in buildings. In addition to chrysanthemum dolls, rows of chrysanthemum blossoms were also displayed, as in this photograph. Taken around 1890 at the peak of the exhibition's popularity.
