Hinamatsuri Festival

Hinamatsuri Festival

RGS students attending the Japanese club have been learning about the Japanese Hinamatsuri Festival and have created their Hina-dolls in origami. Hinamatsuri also called Doll’s Day or Girls’ Day, is a special day in Japan.  It is celebrated each year on 3 March.  Platforms covered with a red carpet-material are used to display a set of ornamental dolls (hina-ningyō) representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period. Our link school in Kobe Japan kindly gave  the school this wonderful present of two ornamental Hina dolls to celebrate with them this Girls’ day.
