Photo of the Day: Hinamatsuri Dolls

The Japanese Doll Festival, or Girls’ Day, is held on March 3. This picture was taken in Nikko at the lobby of ryokan we stayed at two years ago.


Platforms covered with a red carpet are used to display a set of ornamental dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.
