Event information:
Japan has a custom of celebrating the birth of female babies by decorating the house with hina dolls during the Doll Festival on March 3. Due to things like changes in Japanese people's lifestyles, decorating the house with these dolls has decreased. However, as a means to bring new life to the dolls, the Fukuyose Doll Event was started at Nagoya's Cultural Path Futaba Museum in 2011, exhibiting the hina dolls going about daily activities.

This year, it will be held at a total of 25 locations such as Nagoya and other areas in Aichi Prefecture, Gifu Prefecture, Tottori Prefecture, and France.
So, be sure to make it out to the nearest location below with your camera in hand.
