Tokyo Local Customs: 262 reviews and 503 photos
Dolls are very popular in japan that they have a doll festival every march 3, called the hinamatsuri. As intrigue as I am, I though of buying a jpanese doll to add to my intriguing collection. There are various types of Japanese dolls, some representing children and babies, some the imperial court, warriors and heroes, fairy-tale characters, gods and (rarely) demons, and also people of the daily life of Japanese cities. Some are manufactured as a local craft, to be purchased by pilgrims as a souvenir of a temple visit or some other trip and for intrigue tourist like me hehehe! This is a very expensive souvenir at 4000 yen ($ 44) bought at Nakamise shopping street since they don't allow haggling.
