Hina dolls


The Hino-shuku Honjin in Tokyo is holding its annual “Celebration of Hina Dolls” exhibit until March 8. The exhibit is free with admission to the historic landmark, and features Hina dolls of various styles, regions, and time periods decorating the Edo-era estate. In addition to traditional tiered doll sets, displays include tsurushi-bina, an Edo-era style of Hina doll arrangement where symbolic charms are hung in a baby mobile-like fashion. The exhibit is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day of the “Celebration of Hina Dolls” period, with the exception of the Hino-shuku Honjin’s scheduled closures on Feb 25 and March 2. For more details and access information, see the exhibit’s English website.
