Lots of hina dolls portraying endearing day-to-day scenes!

At Inabu District, Toyota-City, it's customary to decorate Hina Dolls following the Lunar Calendar, known in Japan as Former Calendar (as opposed to the current, Gregorian Calendar).
At the main venue of Donguri Kobo Workshop, donated dolls that ended their purpose as Hina Festival decorations are given a second chance at entertaining the guests with the Fukuyose-Bina Project. The dolls are arranged in dioramas depicting scenes of modern life, which some times result in hysterically comical settings.

8th Fukuyose-Bina Project

This event is part of the Fukuyose-Bina Project, this year in its 8th Edition. Recycling Hina Dolls that otherwise would be disposed as garbage, the project uses them as decorations aiming to promote communities and tourism.

This year's project has a record 26 locations across Aichi Prefecture, one location in Gujo-Hachiman (Gifu), and one location in Nara Prefecture.

Locations in Nagoya include Osu Shopping District, Higashiyama Sky Tower, Cultural Path Futaba Museum, Nagoya Castle, Hoshigaoka Terrace, Nakamura Park, Arimatsu Tokaido, Shirotori Garden. Other locations include Chubu Centrair International Airport, Party Seto, Anjo City Museum, Doll's Alleys in Takahama, Kawara Roof Tiles Museum in Takahama, among others.
