"Girls' Day" Japanese Doll Festival




   The Japanese Doll Festival (Hinamatsuri), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3.

   A set of ornamental dolls (hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.





   The custom of displaying dolls began about 1200 years ago. 
   The official decoration consists of five steps.

   Each position is selected as each role.





   I show respect for Lady in the whole world.

   Era when the talent of all women was utilized has come.
   And the world will become more peaceful if the status of women worldwide improves.

  25. Hola Ruma.
    Interesante exposición y explicación sobre las tradiciones y costumbres de tu preciosa tierra, de hace mas de 1200 años y de la era “Heian”.
    Estaremos atentos- yo por lo menos- el próximo 3 de Marzo día de las niñas, para ver con que nuevas colecciones nos deleitas.
    ¿Se portaron bien con los Reyes de Oriente con tigo?, al estar más cerca de su morada, eso espero.
    Besos desde Occidente, parte Sur y calida España, en la actualidad NO tanto.

    Hello Ruma.
    Interesting presentation and explanation of the traditions and customs of your precious land, more than 1200 years ago and was "Heian".
    We will be attentive-I, for one-on 3 March Day of girls, to see new collections that delight us.
    "They were good with the Kings of Orient with you?, To be closer to his home, hopefully.
    Kisses from the West, and warm south side Spain, currently NOT both.


    こんにちはルーマ。
    興味深いプレゼンテーションと伝統とあなたの貴重な土地の習慣、以上1200年以上も前の説明とされた"平安"。
    私たちは気配りされる、私は、1つのための3月3日の日の女の子の上に新しいコレクションは、私たち喜びをしてください。
    "彼らは良いキングス東洋の場合とではないですか?するには、に近いものを自宅に、うまくいけば。
    西からキス、そして暖かい南側のスペインは現在、両方ではない。

  39. Y si las mujeres aprenden a deshacerse de sus creencias y miedos ancestrales, los culturales, más los que se van añadiendo en el caminar del día a día. Abogo por que el mundo se llene de amor, y las primeras que han de encontrarlo en si mismas, son las mujeres. La autoestima, un imprescindible conocimiento de uno mismo para poder lograrlo.

    Un abrazo Ruma,desde esa autoestima reconocida y conquistada tras duras, muy duras pruebas :)

  47. How rich are the colors and fabric... the faces... gestures ... great art. Beautiful! I believe too that if the status of women would rise the world over ... peace would have a chance. Of course only if women do not simply copy and take on male roles.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The dolls are incredibly beautiful, Ruma, so rich in their beautiful fabrics like those used in kimonos. I have to agree with you, as a nurse working in areas of crimes against women and children, as well as violence against men,
    I think it is so important to improve the status of women!

  49. Danke Dir lieber Ruma,
    ich hatte es nur vergessen, da die Puppen irgendwie im Vordergrund standen. Dabei finde ich das Bild von den beiden kleinen Mädchen in ihrem roten Kimonos absolut zauberhaft.

    ganz liebe Grüße und ein wundervolles Wochenende für Dich,

    Isabella
