In the second half of February, shops in Japan are filled with beautiful arrangements of traditionally dressed dolls on bright red tiered platforms. These are the Hina dolls that families with daughters set up to celebrate the Hinamatsuri (Doll's Day or Girls' Day) on March 3 and to wish for their daughters' health and happiness. The Multicolored Hinamatsuri Dolls Set is a stunning example and a great choice for anyone who wants an introduction to this cultural custom!
Handmade using chirimen (silk crepe) fabric, the Multicolored Hinamatsuri Dolls Set features the two main dolls (the Emperor and Empress couple) on the top tier and, on the next tier down, the three court ladies who serve sake to the couple. The third tier contains vases with flowers, hishi mochi rice cakes, chests of drawers, and other household items. A backdrop of multicolored crepe hanging balls in different sizes and designs gives the set an even more festive feel that particularly small girls will find even more enjoyable!
