For commoners in the Edo period, hina doll altars are items of luxury. So they came up with the idea to string together hina dolls and balls, making a hanging version of the hina dolls called tsurushibina. The tsurushibina is used to pray for the happiness and growth of girls in the family. Made of cute flowers, dolls and colorful balls, these brilliant hangings make you happy just by looking at them.
