Hina Dolls, February 18th, 2019
March 3 is the date of the customary Hina Festival in Japan, where dolls representing an Imperial family wedding decorate our houses. The original significance of the custom was to ward off disaster. Over the years it has morphed into a cultural practice to pray for children's health and vitality, and has been passed down to this day. Every year, hina dolls are displayed at the Imperial Hotel, Tokyo up until March 3. In this season of the peach flower, said to ward off evil, do please come and admire these hina dolls, each radiating the skill of its craftsperson.
