Japanese Culture and Japanese gifts ( Hanko, Japanese Traditional Clothing and Accessories ) ⑥ - A Gift From Japan

We have the doll festival that is called Hina Matsuri on March 3 also that is called girls day too.

  It’s the day to pray for healthy growth and happiness for young girls.

Most families with girls display dolls called Hina-Ningyo.

Long ago, people threw paper dolls into rivers and in the sea to drive away evil spirits with them.
People began displaying dolls in the Edo period.

The dolls depict the imperial court.

They are dressed in beautiful ancient court costumes. 

 

 

The Emperor and the Empress have sat on the top.
