Images from the Exhibit

The Doll’s Day or Girl's Day is celebrated on March 3rd each year on which ornamental hina dolls are displayed to wish for girls' health and prosperity.

Hina dolls are also called dairi bina (court dolls) because they represent the emperor and empress. This year's exhibit celebrates the first Hina Matsuri in the Reiwa era and focuses on the changing appearance of the emperor and empress dolls over time. It introduces a variety of hina dolls and dolls produced in Kyoto that were popular during the Edo period (1615–1868). Please enjoy the various aspects of the Japanese doll culture that developed mainly in the ancient capital of Kyoto.
