Konosu Surprising Dolls’ Festival | KONOSU

February 16 @ 10:00 - March 11 @ 21:00

Konosu dolls' festival

Konosu Dolls’ Festival – One of the largest displays of the traditional dolls, featuring Emperor, Empress and all the figures of the Imperial Court, as well as the ancient paraphernalia, is in Konosu, Saitama.  It is called the Konosu Surprising Dolls’ Festival.

The title of Konosu‘s famous girls day displays of dolls is very apt.  Bikkuri Hina matsuri literally means “surprising doll festival“.  When I walked into where they were hosted in 2015, I literally let out a very audible “WOW!” The displays are indeed surprising and also very impressive, easy to access and free to view.


The dolls will be open to the public from February 16th this year and will remain on display until March 11th on the first floor of Elumi Konosu Shopping Mall. The display is open from 10 am until 9 pm except on the last day when the display will close at 3 pm.
