From the ancient Japan, people transferred their misfortunes befallen them to dolls and exorcised them on March 3rd. The dolls are called “Hitogata” which is human figure made of paper or straw and used to be set adrift at sea or down a river. This custom was connected with “doll-house-play” among girls during the 8th century and developed into Hina Festival of today. Today, just as olden day households with young girls, we display Hina Dolls and celebrate Hina Festival to pray for their happiness on March 3rd.
