Tenugui mumbling Vol. 129 – Hina matsuri

Mini Hina-Ningyo and Mame Shibori Tenugui :-)

March 3rd is Hina Matsuri, also called Doll’s Festival or Girl’s day!
Hina Matsuri began in Heian Period (794-1185). In ancient Japanese custom called Hina-nagashi, which a set of Hina-Ningyo (dolls) set on a small boat, and sent down a river to the sea to sending away bad omen from their children. OverĀ  the centuries, the ceremony has been changing, and families who have daughters, decorate the set of Hina-ningyo in the room, and pray her happiness during the Hina-matsuri season.
In myth, some family believes that their daughter would not be able to marry, if they don’t put Hinamatsuri dolls away, just after the Hinamatsuri. So usually Hina-ningyo was put away in the box, and send to the storage right after the festival.

I heard very interesting story last night. It’s getting more popular to buy own Hina-ningyo among over the 40-years old ladies, who haven’t married yet. The tradition has been changing along with changing generation.

Anyway….. this is my mini Hina-Ningyo with Mame shibori Tenugui :-)

Happy Girl’s Day, Tenugui fans!

Tenugui mumbling Vol.85 – Hinamatsuri (Doll’s Festival) “a Hint of Spring”

Saturday, February 26th, 2011

?

My Hina-Ningyo.. 45-years old!

March 3rd is Hina-matsuri (Doll’s festival) in Japan. This is the day to celebrate young girls growing up and being happy. There is also Tango-no-sekku, or Kodomo-no-hi (Children’s day) in May to celebrate boys.

The photo of Hina-ningyo (Dolls) was made by my Aunt Yachiyo when I was born. They have been traveling many cities and many countries with me. I guess they would be eligible for tons of mileage.
Originally from Osaka Japan,? we moved to Yokohama first… and then to?Beijing, Dalian, and Shanghai, China… and then on the boat to Texas… and on the road to New York. Hope they like New York as much as I do now!

Life is very interesting, you never know what will come to you next. Sometimes people are afraid to change,?their location, school, work, partner, and life in general. Whatever it is, open your heart, open your eyes, and listen to your inner whispering… it will bring new possibilities to your life.

Kimono de Jazz at the Kitano

Kimono de Jazz at the Kitano

?We had an event “Kimono de Jazz” at the Kitano?last month. I used my yellow komon Tenugui as a kimono collar, and combined it with the cherry petal Kimono that came from my mother. She said that she wore it for her college ceremony… over fifty years ago!!!! The elegance of Japan has carried over to the next generation… and with our own style!
I love both tradition and change! How about you, Tenugui fans?

Sending you a hint of Spring along with Hina-ningyo and Three Kimono beauties!!!

Hina-matsuri is the girl’s festival on March 3rd in Japan, when the birth of girls is celebrated and wishes are expressed for their future happiness. These hina-ningyo (dolls) are mine and came all the way to New York. My aunt Yachiyo made them when I was born in Osaka, Japan. A couple of dolls have been traveling with me all over the world… wow,?they have?been away from Japan 25-years this year! I know that they have seen many chapters of my life… Please see more about Hina-matsuri on our page from here
