Hinamatsuri is a festival when Japanese people display hina dolls and pray for young girls’ growth and happiness. The custom began during the Heian period and the dolls were dressed in gorgeous ancient court attire. Usually the dolls are placed on seven steps, hinadan, with the emperor and empress at the top, followed by three ladies of the court and five court musicians lower down. Peach blossoms, rice cake cubes and diamond-shaped rice cakes are also displayed on the steps.
