Chikugo Yoshii Hinadoll Festival in 2020

Hina matsuri, also called Doll’s Festival or Girls’ Day, is a special day in Japan, celebrated

each year on 3 March. A platforms covered with a red carpet-material are used to display a

set of ornamental hina dolls, representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians

in traditional court dress of the Heian period.

 

It is an occasion to pray for the well-being and prosperity of girls. It is thought that the festival has its roots

in an ancient purification ceremony, in which dolls were floated down the river, taking all of the girls’ bad

luck with them.

What our Customer have to say

Our family of four recently engaged the service of Japan-Kyushu-tourist to show us around

Kyushu region. From the first enquiry Mr Masa Kondo and subsequently follow-up by

Ms Takako Hanami were very responsive and prompt in their email correspondence.

They have good suggestions for places to visit as well as restaurants that served local cuisines.

Since it’s a private tour we can dictate what we want to see and the length of stay at each attraction.

This made it very flexible and suited our style of travel. We take as long as we wanted wandering,

taking in the sights and many photo opportunities. The vehicle they arranged was top-notch with

plenty of room for comfort.

 

As for Mr Ko we cannot say enough good things about him. He is a careful driver who accompanied

us for five full days exploring Kyushu. His service is outstanding, professional, helpful, and courteous.

He is very punctual in picking us every morning. He is also very knowledgeable about the region of

Kyushu and respond to our questions promptly. The vehicle was kept clean and comfortable

throughout our trip.

 

Overall we had an enjoyable trip and it made it more so with a good driver/escort who is passionate

about his job. We would highly recommend japan-Kyushu-tourist and Mr Ko’s service to anyone

who is looking for a private tour in Kyushu.
