1,000 Years of Hina Dolls

Wishful Thoughts Passed Down from the Heian Period to the Present Day
Hyakudan Hina Matsuri 2024

Jan 20 (Sat.) - Mar 10 (Sun.)

*Open every day during exhibition period.

The Hyakudan Hina Matsuri exhibition, which features a collection of dolls from all over Japan, will be held for the first time in four years at Hotel Gajoen Tokyo, providing visitors with an enjoyable experience as if they had stepped into the Hina Palace.

Each room of the Hyakudan Kaidan -The Hundred Stairs-, a tangible cultural property designated by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government, offers various elegant scenes, including the zashikibina dolls (Iizuka, Fukuoka), which express the elegant world of the Heian period (794-1192) on an overwhelming scale, the Yumiko Kawauchi Collection, a collection of miniature masterpieces, and Hina dolls created by contemporary artists with their diverse sensibilities in addition to the gorgeous decorations of tsurushi kazari hanging ornaments and temari balls.

Visitors can enjoy a refined experience looking at the Hina dolls while waiting for spring, remembering the seasonal festivals that have continuously been passed down from generation to generation, and praying for the healthy growth of their children.
