Hi, I’m Fumi.
Do you have a girls day to pray for growing healthy in your town?
Japanese celebrate the girls growth for a long time traditionally.
Most parents have Ohinasama that dolls wear a traditional Japanese costume, kimono.
It’s a special dolls for them.
They pray ther daughter’s healthy growth, so they display Hina doll at their house in March every year.
What’s Hina ningyo in Japan?
I have a daughter, so my parents bought her the gorgeus Hinna ningyo for their grandchild when she were born.
Of course, I had Hina doll for me at my parent’s house.
My mon’s parents bought her Hina dolls that has 7 steps and many goods on it for praying my healthy growth.
But It was not easy to display many dolls and goods on 7 steps.
It was so tall and took many times to set 7 steps.
Nowadyas, we can get small Ohinasama that has no steps or 3steps.
Hinaningyo store have various size of doll, so we can get any size of it.
If you want have a traditionally big size of dall, you can buy Hina doll has many steps, many dolls and goods.
If you don’t waste your time to display it or don’t have a huge room, you can choose small Hinaningyo. My friend got a small Hinaningyo so she put them on a table.
How to display Japanese girl’s festivals, Hinaningyo
I show you how to built the big Hina Dolls in a room.
First, built the steps.
My daughter’s hina doll has 3 steps.
On the third steps, I display peach blossoms and
On the second steps, I display 3 ladies who work at a court.
On the top, I display a emperor and empress
It’s hard work for me to built them at once.
But recently, my daughter helps me to display them!
If you visit Japan in winter,you can see Hina doll at department stores and toy shops.
Why don’t you get small one as Japanese souvenir?
It doesn’t matter whether you have girls or not.
Small Hina doll reminds you to go to Japan!
