This is from our hometown village, Yoko's sister's house in Kumamoto. Note the addition of some hand-done hinamatsuri by Yoko's niece. While present-day Japan celebrate's "Childrens Day", when growing up in Japan March 3rd was always the celebration of "Girls Day". Little girls dress up and go to the local shrine. Most families (at least in our home village) have sets like this which get handed down. To learn more about this lovely tradition in Japan, please visit Wikipedia HERE.
