The Consulate of Japan in Marseille invites you to discover a wide variety of traditional Japanese dolls. For example, you can admire the dolls called Hina Ningyo, which are exhibited during the Hina Matsuri festival, “the doll festival”. On March 3 in Japan, in the houses where there is a little girl, these dolls, representing the nobles of the imperial court of the Heian era, are displayed to protect the future of the little girls. The dolls are put away immediately after the party and are passed down from generation to generation. In addition to the Hina dolls, other dolls will be presented on the booth.
