Hina dolls for Girls’ Festival that are dressed in Okinawa-style clothes
Gangu ROAD WORKS
Marriage Dolls
In the Doll Festival, Japanese families decorate a set of special Hina dolls to pray for the healthy growth of girls in the family. This is a Hina doll produced with the Ryukyu Hariko papier-mache technique, in which paper is pasted in numerous layers into shape, and painted on with pigments. The vivid colors and patterns make this a truly unique ornament.
