So sorry for the unmatched header and sidebar, especially friends who kindly visited from the link, changed for the newer post;
(posted; Japanese culture page) Sorry for lots of large pictures in this post.
Choufu-city in my prefecture is a castle town, where is one of the reason (or triggered) to open the door to the Meiji Restoration in Japan. At Mori-residence in the city, 'Hina-Doll Exhibition' ←link is going on. As I've posted about this festival last couple years, I wish you to enjoy the pictures :-) Traditional Japanese festival held to wish girls both health and growth.
*This lady showed me how the Japanese '手鞠・Temari' is made*
|She explained me that the purple color bird is made by using her grandmother's kimono.|
So the work has special meaning for her. Hope you can see the arrow in the picture below.
Some of my old friends might remember;
I wish I still had my doll which my grandmother gave me but they were eaten by mouse. Traditionally, Hina-doll is bought by grand parents.
