Find Shizuoka’s traditional Hina Dolls in Tokyo !
Remember the “Mt. Fuji Green Tea Plaza” in Tokyo that I reported the other day ? There now you can find very tiny and adorable suspended hina dolls inherited in Higashi-izu Town since old days. Please see the details about Hina-dolls of Higashiizu Town from here.
Hida Dolls will be expected in the Tokyo office until March 2nd. I personally want them to stay longer but they say that if you don’t get it over with by March 3, you − especially girls − would be left alone away from marriage.
Anyway, enjoy our lovely tradition over wonderful green tea !
Atami Baien ( Plum Garden ) Plum Blossom Festival extended until March 11
Owing to delayed blossoming caused by unexpected cold weather, Plum Blossom Festival in Atami Baien will be extended until March 11. As of Feb 21, they say that 30% of all are in bloom. It’s getting warmer and warmer in Shizuoka these days. I just wonder if they open up at one burst !＾＾
Last year’s report is available from here.
Kawazu-zakura Cherry Blossom Festival extended until March 18
Unconventional cold weather also affected the blossoming time of our featuring festival in winter, “Kawazu Cherry Blossom Festival”. Originally, though, it’s supposed to be held until March 10, due to the unexpected delay, it will be extended until March 18 as “Kawazu Haru Urara ( Balmy Spring ) Festival”. As of Feb 24, only 10-20% of all are in bloom. Not yet good to see. Still, you can enjoy B-class Gourmet or other local foods at food stalls standing all the way along the river. Also please refer to the repot of 2011 from here.
