The Kyoto National Museum's annual exhibition of Japanese dolls displayed for the Doll Festival (Hina Matsuri) features a variety of Kyoto dolls as well as the lavish palace structures they were often displayed on in the Kansai region. This year's exhibition will focus in particular on Kokin bina, the precursor of today's hina dolls, and will look at how their popularity spread from Edo (Tokyo) to Kyoto and Osaka.
