Today is Hina Matsuri, the doll festival.

It used to be a holiday for girls, with a Boy's Day coming along later in the spring. But these days, Boy's Day is now Children's Day and Hina Matsuri is just a minor blip on the calendar.

Girls arrange dolls representing the emperor's court from the Heian period (794-1192). There are always plenty of princesses in fancy kimono. Maybe you'd like to try folding your own origami Hina Matsuri Emperor?
