Hina Matsuri, the Doll Festival
February 25–March 3, Garden Hours February 25–Hina Origami with Yuki Martin, noon–3 p.m. Included with Garden Admission
Hina Matsuri is one of the five annual observances called Go-Sekku that mark the changing seasons. A major feature of this celebration is the display of Hina Ningyo, special dolls representing the imperial family and their courtiers. The Portland Japanese Garden is proud to present the exquisite Dozono family Hina dolls, gifted to the Garden in 2008. Once again, cotton yukata kimonos are provided to dress up your children for a photo in front of the doll display.
