Konosu Surprising Dolls’ Festival | KONOSU

February 19 @ 10:00 - March 8 @ 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.
