Girls' Day: Japanese Doll Exhibit


February 19 through March 3, 2019
 

9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  

 

Hinamatsuri, also called Doll's Day or Girls' Day, is celebrated each year in Japan on March 3. On this day, platforms covered in red fabric are used to display a vast set of ornamental Imperial dolls, or hina-ningyo, representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period  

(A.D. 794 - 1185). 

 

Families generally start to display the dolls in February and take them down immediately after the March 3 festival. Superstition says that leaving the dolls up past March 4 will result in a late marriage for the daughter.  

 

This wonderful collection of dolls belonged to Omaha resident Michiyo Mastumoto David (Michi). Michi's family have gifted the dolls in her honor and in hopes that the Japanese tradition of displaying these magnificent dolls can be enjoyed by the members and guests of Lauritzen Gardens.
