The “Hyakudan Hinamatsuri” exhibit displays historic ornamental dolls from various prefectures across Japan. Since the first exhibition in 2010, over 550,000 visitors have been graced with the beautiful presence of Hina dolls from over 20 regions including Kyoto, the Tohoku, Setouchi and Kyushu regions. From prestigious family heirlooms of daimyos (feudal lords), old families and upper-class merchants to rustic folk toys, the Hina doll culture passed down in different regions come together to create an enchanting world. For its 10th anniversary, this year's exhibit's theme is “Hina dolls stories of Aomori, Akita, Yamagata”. The exhibit includes elegant “kokin-bina” (Edo-style and period Hina dolls) passed down through old families, a deluxe Hina doll tiered display of over 2m in height, miniature Hina doll accoutrements that fit in your hands, and masterpiece Hina dolls of varying ages from the towns in Aomori, Akita and Yamagata. Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to visit these wonderful Hina dolls, which are usually displayed only in their locality.
