Girl’s Day Doll Exhibit

February 15 @ 9:30 am - March 16 @ 4:30 pm

Free with Gardens admission

Japanese parents hail the health and happiness of their daughters with displays of small dolls every March 3. These dolls represent the enthroned Emperor and Empress and their attendants, garbed in court robes of 1,000 years ago. These elaborate miniatures are the hallmark of Hinamatsuri, the Girl’s Day Festival. Arranged on multi-tiered stands draped in red cloth, they are many times family heirlooms. Our doll set is a vintage one, more than a century old. On view from February 15 to March 12. Included with regular gardens admission.
