Chikugo Yoshii Hinadoll Festival in 2020

                                                                                                                                            HOME 

 

Hina matsuri, also called Doll’s Festival or Girls’ Day, is a special day in Japan, celebrated

each year on 3 March. A platforms covered with a red carpet-material are used to display a

set of ornamental hina dolls, representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians

in traditional court dress of the Heian period.

 

It is an occasion to pray for the well-being and prosperity of girls. It is thought that the festival has its roots

in an ancient purification ceremony, in which dolls were floated down the river, taking all of the girls’ bad

luck with them.
