Tenryo Hita Doll Festival
February 15 ~ March 31
Hita, Mameda-machi, Kuma-machi

The Tenryo area of Hita – where culture and tradition survive in a historical setting. Welcome to the colorful world of hina dolls.

Hina Dolls: Suffused with the Traditional Beauty of the Edo Period
The doll festival is a harbinger of spring in Hita’s Tenryo district. The vividly-colored, elaborate dolls and their accoutrements, which were made from the Edo period to the Meiji era, are displayed throughout the area and attract tourists from all over Kyushu. The exhibitions are held in 20 locations in Mameda-machi and Kuma-machi on either side of the JR Hita Station, and the colorful doll festival atmosphere brightens the neighborhood in a way evocative of ages past. The dolls on display have been well preserved by commercial establishments in the city. They present an excellent opportunity to see the inherent beauty of traditional crafts, particularly the attractive coloring of the clothing, the workmanship of the accessories, and the unique expression on each doll’s face. The exhibition area itself has many buildings dating from the Edo period and the Meiji era. Mameda has been designated an important traditional architectural preservation district by the national government. Combined with the doll exhibits, the buildings offer visitors a stately sense of history. Hita is dotted with three-story wood frame buildings that date back three centuries, so visitors can also enjoy the street scenes. Other events are held in conjunction with the doll festival featuring handmade Japanese confections and matcha tea in the Honjo-machi commercial district (3-2 Honjo-machi, 0973-22-2216) and the Kizan-machi commercial district (5-11 Kizan-machi, 0973-22-2800). They’re definitely worth the trip.

Why a Doll Festival in Hita?
The origins of the Hita doll festival date back to the days when the area was a thriving center of government, economics, and culture. It was the headquarters of the Saigokusuji Gundai, one of the four major regional administrators responsible for tax collection and law and order for Shogunal land (tenryo) during the Edo period. In those days, moneylenders and other businesses prospered. These moneylenders used the public funds of the Shogunate in their business. Hita was the administrative center for the Shogunal land, so all the taxes collected in those regions were remitted to the city. This money was lent to the feudal lord and public enterprises to generate profits off the interest, which created a flourishing commercial environment in the town. A local culture arose in the town through the interaction of people, trade, and customs, and the well-to-do merchants began to buy works of art from Edo and Osaka. This artwork included the hina dolls and their accessories. The families that owned these dolls treasured and carefully preserved them, and publicly displayed them on March 3 during the Doll Festival. The festival has become one of the most well-known of its type. The dolls are shown with the wish for the sound growth of the children in the household. Visitors to the event get the opportunity to relive Edo culture in Hita as well as witness a reminder of warm parental love.

Sightseeing Information

Formerly one of the world’s richest gold mines, 800 meters of the 110-kilometer shaft has been rebuilt into a sightseeing course featuring the subterranean world. Visitors can try their hand at prospecting for gold for a 600 fee. This involves filling a plate with sand and water, swishing it around, and patiently looking for treasure, an activity that engrosses both children and adults.
