Photographer's Note

As I was working in Yawatahama, the CEO of the shipyard there invited me and a colegue to see a doll festival.

I thank you for inviting me, and showing me these beutiful creations of dolls and landscape.

Please read this article in wikipedia

These festivals are to honor the last girl born in the family, and to bring her luck on the way thrugh her life. So every family who has a girl would try their best to make one of these displays the first spring of her life. These displays last for one day, and the cherry flowers, dolls and everything else is hand made.
