  • Donguri Kobo Workshop Hina Doll Festival

2024 theme: Chuma Road Through the Fukuyose Village

Hina dolls—depicting elaborate Japanese court life and wedding scenes—are beloved decorations handed down and treasured by families. However, the dolls can sometimes find themselves gathering dust and no longer enjoying the former elaborate displays.
The Inabu area's Fukuyose Hina Project began with the aim of finding a new home for such Hina dolls reaching the end of their life as the beloved decorations. These "Fukuyose Hina", or "Charity Hina dolls", are given to and put on display at the Donguri Kobo Workshop in a variety of interesting and comical poses based on themes differing by year. Find the dolls, say, vacuuming their apartments, going out to beauty salons, singing karaoke, and a number of other unusual acts for kimono-clad Japanese royalty!
For 2024, the Hina dolls reenact life on the old Chuma Road. The Chuma Road—also known as the "Salt Road"—connected various parts of the Mikawa area to locations in Nagano Prefecture to the north. The road was used largely to transport salt made in the Mikawa Bay as an integral material for life in the northern mountainous regions far from the ocean.
