Hina Matsuri 2009: A Special Day for Girls!
February 26–March 3
Garden Pavilion
Free with Garden Admission

Visit the Garden Pavilion from February 26 to March 3 to view the Garden's elaborate display of festival dolls in celebration of Hina Matsuri, the Doll Festival. One of the annual Go-Sekku events, the festival is held to pray for the health and happiness of little girls.

The Garden is proud to display this extraordinary collection of costumed figures depicting imperial courtiers amid a full complement of beautifully lacquered furnishings. Photograph your favorite little princess against the brilliant backdrop of this exquisite seven-tiered set, a generous gift from the Loen and Sho Dozono Family to the Garden in 2008.

Hina Matsuri 2009 is sponsored by the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation.
