     The 10th 'Hyakudan Hinamatsuri' exhibition at the Hyakudan Kaidan exhibition hall, the Tokyo metropolitan government-designated cultural asset, in Hotel Gajoen Tokyo brought together a total of some 1,000 hina dolls and ornaments from Aomori, Akita and Yamagata prefectures in northeastern Japan. In the Hinamatsuri Girls' Day festival on March 3, a couple of dolls, usually depicting an emperor and an empress, are displayed with attendants and musicians dressed in court attire of the Heian period, which ran for nearly 400 years from 794, to wish for the well-being and happiness of girls.
