Hida Live Dolls Festival

Hida Live Dolls Festival

Single women selected from all over Hida render service at a Shinto shrine,
attired in costumes of the Empress, consort, ministers, and court ladies.
The parade of Live Dolls, as it winds through the village, looks as if it were right out of a picture scroll of the Heian period. Rice cakes are scattered at the end of the festival.
