Description In Japan, there is a girl's festival (call Hinamatsuri) at 3 March. It is an occasion to play for young girl's growth and happiness. Most homes with girls display Hina-dolls for Hinamatsuri and dedicate to them peach blossoms, hinaarare (rice cake cubes), Hishimochi (special colored and diamondshaped rice cakes), Shirozake (white sake), and other items.
This dool is a part of "Sannin-kanjyo" in Hina dolls. Sannin-kanjyo means the three court ladies. They are support and care for the emperor (Odairi-sama) and the empress consort (Ohina-sama). She is wearing Japanese traditional Kimono (colored orange and white). She shoulds hold a gold ladle on her hands, but already lost it. She has a long black hair and knot hair with yellow and orange strings. She is standing on the wooden pedestal.
