Additional Information

Hina Matsuri Doll Festival 雛祭り

Girls´ Day is celebrated March 3rd in Japan. On this day, parents wish their daughters’ happiness, growth, and good health. A set of ornamental dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period, are displayed on platforms covered with a red carpet.

Even families without daughters might display dolls. In families with only sons (or no children at all), these are often the mother´s own Hina Dolls brought from her parents´ home. Then there are those without family who simply like to decorate their apartments with Hina Doll motifs just to get into the spirit of the season.


Price € 780,– (Shipping and insurance fees are not included in the price).

All pictures may show some colour differences. I have tried to show everything as natural as possible.
