Hinamatsuri (Doll Festival) Exhibition

Museums, History

Back for another round, the Shinjuku's Keio Plaza Hotel Tokyo is hosting its annual exhibition for hinamatsuri (girl's doll festival), which takes place every year on March 3. By displaying beautifully dressed ceramic dolls which resemble the ancient imperial court, families wish for their daughter’s health and happiness. Marvel at 6,800 dainty, graceful handmade dolls, as well as other traditional decorations. The hanging ornaments are hand-stitched from old silk kimono and made specially for this exhibition. Don't forget to pop by any of the ten restaurants inside the hotel, which have all prepared special treats in hinamatsuri-style.
