When: 05/10/14: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Where: Meiji Shrine, 1-1 Yoyogi-Kamizonocho
Here’s a festival for anyone who has ever wondered what happens to soft toys and beloved dolls after they’ve rendered years of devotion to children…This particular festival takes place every year at the Meiji Jingu shrine. All kinds of dolls and soft toys are collected from children’s families after they are no longer needed, displayed for a while and then given a thank you for their years of loyalty—and sent off to the spirit world.
For a price tag of ¥3000 per bagful, you can bring your own devoted companions from 9am to hand them over to another world. You can also view a dance performance in honor of the dolls.
