Kodomo no Hi

 

Originally a pair of separate festivals, Girls' Day (March 3) and Boys' Day (May 5) were united in 1948 into a single festival called Kodomo no Hi. The day is meant to honor the happiness of children and their mothers.  This small exhibit displays traditional Girls' Day dolls and Boys' Day carp kites.  The exhibit was curated by students of the Haffenreffer Museum Student Advisory Board.  Visit our Facebook photo album.
