Hina Matsuri Dolls Displays in Fujimi

Looking for a dolls display in Fujimi, Saitama? At Nanbata Castle park‘s period house you can view a dolls display for free annually. These dolls may not be to the level of the Konosu Bikkuri Hina Matsuri pyramid displays, but they are  pretty and come with their own history.

Nanbata Castle cultural park and heritage house is a free, but fun place to visit with kids. They leave out period toys for children to play with, such as stilts and koma spinning tops.

The park is also host to a musket shooting display and festival.

Nambata Castle Park Information

Address: 568-1 Shimonanbata, Fujimi.
Phone: 049-253-4664
Hours: 9 am to 5 pm seven days a week for the garden, but the buildings close on Mondays.
Cost: Free

There is a bus that stops just a five minute walk from the castle, but it is very infrequent. You can get a more frequently operated bus that stops a 13 minute walk from the park. But probably the handiest is the bus from Tobu Tojo Line Shiki station east exit bound for Lalaport. That stops at “Nanbata Castle Park South Gate” , about a 7 minute walk from the park.

There is a small car park for about six cars.

Update July 1st 2019. There is a new official webpage for Nanbata Castle Park. Also, as of today the whole park is non smoking

This event was originally posted on the blog side in February 2015. Moved to the events section on August 5th 2020. The information for 2021 is currently tentative. I will update it closer to the time.
