     The 80-centimeter-tall hina dolls from Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture, were given to local salt magnate Buzaemon Nozaki's family by the former Okayama lord in the early Meiji era


     Tiny to giant antique 'hina' dolls went on display along with some 500 other dolls at Meguro Gajoen's Hyakudan Kaidan exhibition hall in Tokyo's Meguro Ward to celebrate the March 3 'Hinamatsuri' festival for girls. This year's exhibition, the sixth of its kind, focused on dolls from the three western Japan prefectures facing the Seto Inland Sea: Hyogo, Okayama and Hiroshima. Most of hina doll sets comprise the emperors, empresses, attendants and musicians in Heian period attire.
