Giant inflatable doll installed at historic Japanese heritage site

One of the most famous and historic temples in Kyoto, Japan, became home to a new temporary addition last week, with a 12.5-metre-tall inflatable kokeshi doll welcoming visitors to the Kiyomizu-Dera.






One of the most famous and historic temples in Kyoto, Japan, became home to a new temporary addition last week, with a 12.5-metre-tall inflatable kokeshi doll welcoming visitors to the Kiyomizu-Dera.

Installed between March 5 to March 13, Japanese art collective Yotta created the work, which lies down while singing and talking, even sometimes muttering under its breath that it’s hungry.

The installation is part of the 2022 Artists’ Fair Kyoto - a showcase of contemporary paintings, sculptures, and video works. The annual event uses historic and cultural spaces, as well as corporate buildings, to create “eccentric exhibition spaces” for local artists.
