The Kasuisai Hina Matsuri Festival (Festival of Dolls) is held every year at Kasuisai Temple in Shizuoka Prefecture, Fukuroi City.

At this Hina doll festival, you can enjoy a wide variety as it is considered one of the biggest Hina doll festivals in Japan.

Salon Hallway

The festival features around 1.200 hina dolls displayed on 32 steps in the large Zuiryukaku hall, a large number of dolls reaching close to the ceiling. In addition to common hina dolls, rare hina ornaments, kasafuku umbrellas, sarubobo and others.

The dolls in the large hall are placed in such a way that visitors can fully see each of their faces. Many people are moved not only by the number of dolls, but by the beauty of well-groomed dolls.

Hina Matsuri
