"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.
