【Lobby Display in Annex】 Boy’s Festival’s Armor and Doll

News Apr 20 2017

It has been a tradition in Japan to display dolls with kabuto (helmet) and yoroi (armor) to celebrate the birth of boys and to wish for their strong and healthy growth, on the Boy’s Festival (also called Children’s Day), May 5.


Until the Edo Period, kabuto and yoroi were thought to be important armors for protection, however, after Edo Period, these were displayed to protect boys from calamity. Nowadays, it is also to wish for boys’ blessed life and good luck with education, employment, marriage and more.


In the lobby of Annex Building, Shiba Park Hotel, a doll wearing yoroi and kabuto will be displayed to wish for all guests of ours to have a safe, enjoyable and memorable stay at both Shiba Park Hotel 151 & Shiba Park Hotel.

Period: April 21 (Fri.) ~ May 5 (Fri.), 2017
Place:   Lobby, Shiba Park Hotel (1F, Annex Building)
