The Soul of the Japanese Doll – permanent exhibit.   

The exhibit presents the history of Japanese dolls, which have a special place in the daily life of the Japanese people. On the holiday Tango no Sekku, which marks the transition from spring to summer, young boys and girls are given small figurines which they take home and treat like real human beings. When the dolls get old or are not needed by the children anymore, their owners hold farewell ceremonies and organise doll funerals. The dolls are taken to a temple for people to thank and say good bye to them, then they are burned.
