Hinamatsuri Origami workshop

Hinamatsuri Origami workshop

Today, we would like to tell you about the Hinamatsuri Origami workshop.

Do you know Hinamatsuri, the Hina dolls festival?
Hinamatsuri, the dolls festival, is a festival to pray for young girls’ growth and happiness in Japan.
Hinamatsuri is celebrated on March 3.
Most families with girls display dolls for the dolls festival.

Origami is one of Japan’s traditional paper craft arts.
By folding origami, we can make various things, like birds, animals, and so on.

In this workshop, we folded the Hina doll(Hina-ningyo). the Emperor(odairi-sama) and the Empress(ohina-sama).
I folded origami after a long time, so it was difficult to fold at first.
But as I folded the origami, I could fold it while reminiscing about the old days.
The important point is to fold correctly at the corners.

Here, it’s done.

Do you know whether people still display Hina dolls after March 3?

It is generally said that the Hina dolls must be cleared up early after March 3, but there are many places where the dolls are displayed throughout March.

The roots of the Hina dolls festival are initially said to be March 3 of the lunar calendar. It is early April in the current calendar. Therefore, some dolls are displayed until the end of March or early April, depending on the area.
