ひな祭り - Hinamatsuri - Putting the Dolls out Montage

Us putting up the girls Hina Dolls for the Hinamatsuri.  It took us over an hour to do. The girls love their dolls and go into the room every day to say hello to the dolls.

The Japanese Doll Festival (雛祭り Hina-matsuri), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3. Usually platforms covered with a red carpet are used to display a set of ornamental dolls (雛人形 hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period. Of course there are many different times of dolls which you can see in this video.
