Tentative: Konosu Surprising Dolls’ Festival 2021

February 17 @ 10:00 March 7 @ 21:00

Konosu dolls' festival

Konosu Dolls’ Festival . Tentative information for Japan’s largest pyramid dolls display at “the surprising dolls festival” in 2021. The Surprising Dolls’ festival with pyramid of 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 dates for 2021 have not yet been released, and given the current world climate there is a chance the event may not be able to go ahead in 2021. However, if the event does go ahead, it will most likely follow the pattern of the previous years. Which would mean the dolls will be open to the public from February 17th in 2021. Again, if the pattern follows previous years and the start date is indeed the 17th of February the event will most likely close on March 7th. During the period the pyramid and various dolls’ displays are exhibited on the first floor of Elumi Konosu Shopping Mall (map at bottom of post). The display is open from 10 am until 9 pm except on the last day when the display will close at 3 pm.
