5-year-old Me in front of Hinamatsuri display

Photo 4 of 4: 5-year-old Me in front of Hinamatsuri display

A few years after my parents’ passing, I came across an old tattered box tucked away in the far corner of their garage. What a delightful surprise when I discovered nine Hinamatsuri dolls carefully wrapped in yellowed newspaper. The dolls were in impeccable shape considering they were over 60 years old. Included with the dolls was a 1957 photo of me posing in front of the Hanamatsuri display my father had built, rekindling a flood of heartfelt memories from my childhood. Today, they are beautifully displayed in a glass cabinet in my living room.

P.S. – I, unfortunately, did not find the Emperor and Empress dolls, the two main characters of the Hinamatsuri display.
